Shamim Miah (SPWT6 2011-13) - now reading Social Policy and Economics at London School of Economics
Students at St Paul's Way Trust VI Form are celebrating outstanding results at A Level. All students are progressing to university with 50% obtaining places at top 'Russell Group' universities including LSE, UCL and QMUL. In March 2013 Ofsted awarded the school 'Outstanding' in all categories, including the VI Form.
Two of our top performing students were Shamim Miah and Tonny Duong. Shamim will be studying Social Policy and Economics at London School of Economics after achieving 2 A grades and a B, Tonny will be studying Electrical Engineering at UCL after achieving an A*, an A and a B.
Shamim Miah said, "I feel ecstatic that I got into my first choice university, LSE. In the past few years, St Paul's Way Trust School has taught me that if you have a thirst for learning the grades will come. I enjoy learning, and intend to go on to learn much more!"
Paul Newbury, VI Form Director of Learning said, "We are delighted by the success of our young people and by the resilience and determination they have shown in succeeding in their chosen pathways. There are some truly outstanding results. These results confirm that students in our new VI Form make outstanding progress. They establish St Paul's Way Trust as an academic VI Form which can support students to enter the top universities."
Students at the school received a high number of top grades. 48% of grades awarded were at A*-B, 11% higher than the local average last year. St Paul's Way Trust is a 'Faraday' Science specialist school with Professor Brian Cox as its patron therefore it was especially pleasing that students gained places at top universities to study scientific subjects such as Electrical and Aeronautical Engineering.
