This year is unique for A-Level students as they receive their qualifications without sitting final exams.

A full breakdown of the results is not yet available. However, despite the disruption to the school year in Westminster, there are plenty of happy, successful students who will be moving onto the next stage of their education, career, and life with strong results.

Westminster City School’s results were impressive with 28% achieving A*-A, around half achieving A*-B, and 68% receiving A*-C grades.

Victor Eze-Ukaegbu, one of three students from the cohort to be moving onto Oxbridge, received A*AA he will be reading a Masters in Biochemistry at Oxford. He had been a pupil at Westminster City School since year 7 and said he was happy to pick up his results and that his parents were proud and pleased of his achievements.

Similarly, there was also lots to celebrate at St George’s Catholic School in Maida Vale where there were also some stand out performance from individual students. Mariam Kakushadze achieved A*A*A grades and will begin reading Physics at Imperial University in Autumn.

Another student choosing to continue her education at another of our fantastic educational institutes situated in Westminster was Cheyenne Griffin. Cheyenne received AAA and will read politics at King’s College.

Cllr Timothy Barnes, Westminster City Council Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said:

“It’s been a really challenging time for our young people and the uncertainty ahead of A-Level results day has been even greater for them this year.

“Because of this, I couldn’t be prouder or more pleased for our current students who have excelled in their results at our Westminster sixth forms and colleges. It’s fantastic to hear all of the wonderful success stories and I wish our young people the best of luck in their future job, university, apprenticeship or work-training programme.”

Although it will take a few days to see the full picture of results in Westminster, London, and Nationally, the initial signs of success we have seen from our local sixth forms and colleges are promising and further reinforce that Westminster is a great place to live, work, study and learn.

Westminster City Council wish all young people who have received their results today well, as they continue their academic journey, or begin their career journeys. If your results were not what you hoped for, please remember that your school is on hand to support you.
