Students at South Bank UTC were delighted to have beaten their expected A Level grades this year.
Grades came in at an average of C+ in 2021 at the Brixton Hill school, which is supported by London South Bank University and specialises in technical education in areas like engineering and health.
Results in mathematics, biology and chemistry were even better, with an average grade of B. Technical results in BTEC Business and extended certificates in engineering were also strong, South Bank UTC said.
Outstanding individual performers included Christian Ancu, who scooped an A*AB in A-levels and a Distinction in BTEC engineering, Micah Salmon, who got A*A*A and Omar Bedward, who got an AB and Distinction* in BTEC engineering.
Some 18 per cent of leavers this year are going onto Russell Group universities, and 18 per cent are going to London South Bank University.
Southbank UTC’s principal Austin Sheppard said: “We are so proud of all our Year 13 students at South Bank UTC and all they have overcome in the last two years on their way to securing excellent outcomes. The determination of the young people and nurturing support of the staff have enabled students to reach their potential.
“We are very proud of the growing number of apprenticeships secured by our leavers, especially considering how competitive it is to secure these in the current economic climate. Our leavers have secured amazing placements including Iga Dzadz, who leaves us to take up a degree apprenticeship with Skanska.
“I look forward to hearing stories of success and anticipate welcoming many of this year’s cohort back to the UTC in the future to inspire the next generation of young engineers.”
