Best Ever Results at UST Schools

The results for UST Schools this year were the best yet, and were a true reflection of all the hard work by students and staff and the support provided by families and our Trust Partners.

In our Foundation School pupils exceeded all the national benchmarks, with writing and mathematics significantly above the national average:

“I am thrilled by these results, and want to congratulate everyone. We are over-subscribed with our brand new school now open which will really help us support our wonderful students and their amazing families even more this year.”

Clare Lynam, Headteacher, St Paul’s Way Foundation School

At St Paul’s Way Trust, which has been graded by OfSTED as ‘Outstanding’ since 2013, the results were amongst the top 10% in the country with a stunning overall performance at A Level:

  • 97% of students achieved A*-C at A Level
  • 96% of students progressed to university
  • 60% of students progressed to Russell Group universities

Some of the many noteable individual results at A Level included Ijaz Choudhury who achieved 3 A* grades and secured The Barts & The London Medicine Scholarship (worth £75,000 over seven years) organised in collaboration with one of our Trust Partners (Queen Mary University of London), and Alexandra Pricop who achieved 3 A grades is going on to study Medicine at Kings College London. 

The results at GCSE were equally impressive with Labib Khan achieving seven grade 9s, one A* and one A** in Further Maths, the top grade possible. Jenny Hunyh also achieved A** in Further Maths, along with six grade 9s, two grade 8s and two grade 7s.  Other top performers include Ibrahim Thasin with five grade 9s, and one A*, Alana Alberto-Assiss with five grade 9s and Tanzim Chowdhury with five grade 9s, four grade 8s and one grade A.

“The exceptional achievement of our Y11 and sixth form students this year, the best in our school's history, demonstrates that remarkable things really do happen when you combine your students' potential, their hard work and their determination with great support from their families and a talented and committed teaching/tutor team.”

Phil Akerman, Executive Headteacher, St Paul’s Way Trust

And students and staff were also celebrating at Royal Greenwich Trust School as well.  This school, which only joined a couple of years ago, has already seen their Sixth Form results improve:

  • 96% of students secured their next step
  • 58% of students secured a place at university
  • 38% of students joined apprenticeships programmes or started work

The top performing student, Ruth Osagiator-Obude, achieved A*AA (in Geography, Psychology and Economics), becoming the most successful student in the short history of the school. She will go on to read Politics, Philosophy & Economics at University College, Oxford, another first for a student from our school.

Phillip Wulfhorst achieved straight As in Physics, Maths and Further Maths, and will go on to study Biomedical Engineering at King’s College, London.

Our Engineering cohort once again yielded the school’s strongest results leading to a wealth of places to study Engineering at the country’s top institutions, including Brunel, Nottingham and Birmingham. Among the top performing students were Mubarik Jehoney and Esosa Ighodaro, who both achieved Triple D* and were rewarded with places at Leeds University.

“We are thrilled by the results this year, which says so much about the talented staff team and hard-working students at our school.  We have come a long way in such a very short time, and with the recent ground-breaking for our new buildings and already being oversubscribed, the whole school is ambitious to do even better this year”.

Dr Richard Marshall, Headteacher, Royal Greenwich Trust School

Commenting on these results the Chief Executive of UST, Grahame Price who is a National Leader of Education, said:

‘We are very proud of the achievements of all of our students and reflects the hard work of our staff and the commitment of our Trust Partners.  Our schools continue to be beacons of success for the communities they serve and I am delighted that through our School of Education we are helping other schools achieve similar success’.
