More than 1 in 3 students at Isleworth & Syon School get top grades

The Hounslow School got “fantastic” results with more than a third of students getting top A Level grades. Two students gained a places at Oxbridge.

A statement on the school’s website read:

“It has been another fantastic year of level 3 results at Isleworth & Syon School, as two students earned places at Oxbridge universities as a result of their hard work and dedication. Miles Clark earned 2 A*s (mathematics and further mathematics) and 1 A (physics), while Gheorghe Rotaru also achieved 2 A*s (chemistry and mathematics) and 1 A (biology). Both head to Oxford to study engineering and biochemistry respectively. Both students made significance progress on their GCSE grades, demonstrating the strength of Sixth Form provision at school. These achievements are doubly impressive considering that the boys pursued their individual passions during the school year, with Miles continuing to swim at a national level and Gheorghe earning his grade 8 on the piano.

“Across A level and BTEC, over one in three of our students achieving the top grades possible. Our A level results across the board once again exceed the national average, with 26% of A level grades at A*/A. Particular mention must be given to Harmeet Singh, who earned a staggering five A*s, which included three mathematics qualifications plus English literature and, finally, an extended project which scored 100%. He also scored top marks in 10 out of 12 mathematics and further mathematics modules. He has secured a place at Imperial College to study mathematics. We were delighted to see Omar Mahfoudi add to his 6 GCSE A*s, with straight As in biology, chemistry and history. He now heads to King’s College London to study medicine. Finally, the Kumar twins, Manahar and Mohan, each scored three A grades and will study law and accounting and finance respectively. We had successes across our varied subject offer, with our art students particularly notable for achieving 100% A*-B grades.”

Capital 6 will give you everything you need to achieve your full potential.” As an aspiring Archaeologist, Jemica is looking forward to studying History at Queen Mary’s University of London.

We wish them all the best in this exciting next phase of their lives.

John Lyon School

A third of John Lyon School pupils got either A* or A in their A Levels.

Of the 2018 Harrow school’s Upper Sixth cohort of 74 students, one-in-five achieved all A* / A grades, 15 boys received at least one A* and 21 boys can boast at least two A* / A grades.

Recognised as two of the very best universities in the world, both Oxford and Cambridge will welcome John Lyon A-Level students, with Owen Marshall (A* A A) reading History at Oxford and Olamide Mabifa (A* A* A) reading Human, Social and Political Sciences at Pembroke College, Cambridge.

Other students will take up courses at other leading universities and performing arts institutes, take gap years before embarking on the next stages of their lives, go into part-time study alongside the workplace, or move straight into post-school employment.


Lower Sixth student Dhiren Harji achieved his A* in Mathematics a year early and will now complete a further three A-Levels in his Upper Sixth year, a reflection of his skill and dedication and the School’s commitment to continue to offer four A-Levels to pupils who wish to study them.


While A-Level results and university entrance success remain a tangible annual reminder of the strength and focus of John Lyon’s academic offer, it can often hide other skills and achievements gained over years of schooling. While achieving Oxbridge success Owen Marshall was also captaining the 1st XI Cricket team, while Lami Mabifa was starring in Athletics and captaining Norwood to School House glory. Tom Salter achieved his grades for Durham while also being a firm fixture in both the 1st X1 Football team and in a number of School Drama productions.

John Lyon Head, Katherine Haynes, said:

“Seeing excellent exam results on paper is always pleasing and is a reflection of the skill and hard work of our students and teachers alike. These results are important in unlocking the next exciting phases of our pupils’ lives.

“But it is more pleasing to know that John Lyon boys will now head off around the country to continue their education with a great depth of skills and experience in other areas of life, whether that be on the sports field, in the music hall, on the stage or in volunteering and community work.

“I am always delighted to hear from former pupils who have gone on to achieve great things and who are happy in their chosen paths, and I have no doubt I will hear from the Class of 2018 in years to come with more stories of great personal and professional success.”
