Top Marks for Hatch End High School Students!Posted on: 18/08/2022
Hatch End High School students and teachers welcomed the return of formal A Level and BTEC assessments by securing the best set of A Level results in the school’s history, far surpassing last year’s Teacher Assessed Grades and proving just how capable and well prepared our students are.
In a year where results were expected to fall nationally after a two year absence of externally assessed exams, Hatch End students have bucked the trend and delivered the school’s best ever A Level results.
We could not be more proud of our young people and send them our heartfelt congratulations. We would also like to thank our wonderful staff who have helped them gain these grades and their families for all their support. A real community effort!
We celebrate the determination, resilience and optimism of our students who in spite of all the disruption to their education over the past two and a half years, have excelled. 30% of all grades were at A*/A and 90% of all grades at A* to C; that really is a remarkable achievement for a cohort of students sitting public examinations for the first time.
Our young people young people leave us so well equipped to take their next steps, with them all going on to a variety of exciting university and apprenticeship courses.
The following students secured straight A* grades: Eesha Patel, Ilhan Khan (who both achieved 3A* grades) and Rishabh Varia who secured 4 A* grades in Maths, Physics, Chemistry & Biology and now intends to pursue a degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering at world leading Imperial College, London.
Rishabh said: “I’ve only been successful because of Hatch End High School and my family. I am so grateful for all the never-ending support. The teaching staff have been absolutely excellent and taken great care of me. They have pushed me to do my very best and achieve my goals”.
A further 10 students had a mixture of A*s and A grades, for example, Yosuf Ali achieved 3 A grades in Maths, Chemistry and Biology. Yosuf joined Hatch End as a refugee from Syria. Thanks to our guidance and his hard work, determination, tenacity and commitment he will now be going on to read Medicine at the Russell Group University of Southampton and he hopes to return to work in his homeland in future, specialising in Cardiology.
Yosuf said: “I came to the UK from Syria as a refugee when I was 12 years old and spoke no English. The environment at Hatch End High School is the reason I have achieved these results. There is always a teacher/staff member to help you no matter what, it is the exceptional support you receive at Hatch End High School which has enabled me to be so successful.”
BTEC National students also performed exceptionally, with Mohamed Alrubei and Yousif Radi both achieving straight Distinction* grades, and a further 4 students achieving all Distinctions and 1 Distinction. Mohamed and Yousif are now both studying Business at Queen Mary University of London.
Stefan Duta who achieved A*A*A in his A Levels is one of two Hatch End students to be starting an Investment Banking Degree Apprenticeship with Exeter University; on learning his results he said, “I came to the UK at the end of Year 10 from Spain and spoke no English. I have worked exceptionally hard to achieve my results, but the teaching at Hatch End High School has ensured my success. My advice to students is to listen to the teachers, complete your homework and do what excites you!”.
Head of Sixth Form Mr Richards said: “We are so proud of our students; they have overcome adversity, risen to the challenges and finished their secondary education in style.”
Headteacher Ms Maguire said: “At Hatch End High School, we pride ourselves on developing the whole child, as well as securing outstanding academic outcomes – our young people today have shown us just how resilient they are, and they deserve the very best of futures. We are so proud of them all.”
