Chobham Academy students celebrate university places
Students at Chobham Academy are celebrating another year of excellent A Level results, with nearly all students securing their chosen place at university.
There were a number of notable individual successes, including:
- Asmaa Mahamud, who attained two As and a B in economics, Spanish and religious studies and will be reading Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Oxford;
- Afsana Begum, who achieved an A* and two As and will study Politics and History at SOAS, University of London;
- Fatima Khan, who achieved an A*, an A and a B and will study Engineering and Architectural Design at UCL;
- Shaya Tiyana Small, who achieved an A*, an A and a B and will study Psychology at the University of Leicester;

- Serina Kaur Sanger, who achieved three As;
- Milda Smaizyte, who achieved two As and a B;
- Jerin Anisah Abddin, who achieved an A*, an A and a B.
In total, 13.5% of grades attained by Chobham students were A*-A and 36% were A*-B. The average grade attained by students in their A levels was a C grade, and Distinction + for vocational subjects.
Rebecca Hickey, Executive Principal of Chobham Academy, said:
“We are thrilled that nearly all of our students secured their chosen place at university this year, a triumphant result given our students come from one of the most socially deprived areas in London.
“It is a fantastic accomplishment for Asmaa to have achieved an Oxford University place, and testament to her hard work and dedication. I am very proud of the quality of our students' results across a very broad range of subjects. We wish them all the very best of luck in their university careers.”
