Fardowsa Ahmed is St Alban’s ‘star’ student and was amazed with her results:

“I got 10 A*s and one A - I can’t believe it!  I really didn’t expect to get these grades”.

Fardowsa is going on to study Geography, Chemistry, Physics and Maths A level at Ark St Alban’s Academy Sixth Form.

David Gould, Principal at Ark St Alban’s Academy, said:

“I continue to be very proud of the achievements of our students, and grateful for the support of their parents, and the unwavering dedication of the staff at Ark St Alban’s Academy.  It is only through collective determination and hard work that our students achieve great things in the classroom and beyond.  Many of our students will now join our sixth form which celebrated its first year of excellent A level results last week and we will be delighted to see them further their studies and achieve even more.  I want to congratulate all of our students on their results which are our best yet and wish them all the very best in their future”.
