Pupils in Neasden boasted a fantastic set of A-level results with more than half of the students gaining the A* - C grade.

The pupils, from the Crest Boys Academy in Crest Road were delighted this morning following the long summer wait for their results.

Student Naqib Rahmani secured a place at Cambridge University to study Chemical Engineering, having gained 4 grade As.

Other successes include Zahid Qasim and Talayeh Rehman who will go to study at Kings College, University of London. The percentage of students gaining A*-C grades has risen from 62 per cent in 2011 to 68 per cent this year while the overall pass rate has risen from 94 per cent last year to 97 per cent this year.

Phil Hearne Principal of The Crest Boys’ Academy said: “I’m delighted with today’s results and thrilled for our students and staff.

“Our sixth form provision is growing from strength to strength and is offering a fantastic array of subjects.

“Today’s results are a credit to the teaching and learning from both students and staff.”

Pupils at the Swaminarayan School in Brentfield Road also scooped terrific results, almost half the students achieved A* - A grades with two pupils landing a place at Cambridge.

The A* to C pass rate was 85 per cent with a total pass rate of 97.4 per cent.

Mahendra Savjani, Principal of the Swaminarayan School said: “The A level results this year were very good with most students gaining admission at the university of their first choice.

“Students are able to reach their full potential at The Swaminarayan School because we are able to provide individual attention in smaller classes.

“We are very proud of these results and congratulate the students, parents, teachers and governors who have all worked together to achieve excellence.”
