Students at Harlesden school were celebrating collecting their results yesterday morning (Thursday).

Lynette Akuffo, who achieved five 9s, three 8s, one A* and one 6, said: “I felt really nervous on my way into school this morning. I’m really happy with the results I have achieved. The hard work paid-off. I’m going onto study maths, further maths and chemistry.”

Stella Lienu-Mpakam, who achieved three 9s, three 8s, one A*, one 7, one 6 and one 5, said: “My heart was pounding as I arrived at school this morning. I felt so happy to see the grade 9s that I achieved. I feel really proud. I’m going to study A-levels in maths, biology, chemistry and French.”

Abigail Yohannes, who achieved two 9s, three 8s, two 7s, one A and two 6s said: “I felt a mixture of nervous and excited this morning, I could hardly open my results. I’m really happy with the results I received and I’m looking forward to starting my A-levels.”

The school’s headmistress, Louise McGowan, paid tribute to her students and staff saying: “I am very proud of all our students and their teachers. To see so many achieve the highest grades of 7, 8 and 9 is exceptional, but of equal importance are the students for whom academic study can be a struggle; seeing the delight on their faces as they open their envelopes and think ‘Yes, I did that!’ is heartwarming.”
