Amal a

Amal A. achieved an impressive set of results, including 3As in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and an additional C in Further Maths and has secured her place at UCL to study Medicine.

“I am really pleased with my results today, focusing on 4 A-Levels has been hard work, but I am very happy it has all paid off. The additional 1-2-1 support offered from our teachers has been so valuable and I genuinely believe they are highly supportive and really care about the students at HSC. The tight knit community created at HSC is like no other and there is a real sense of camaraderie amongst students and teachers. Through these relationships we have been able to build each other’s confidence and set high expectations, as you know you will always be supported.”

“One of the highlights during my time at HSC was being involved with the Policy First Programme, as not only was it great fun but it helped me develop my skills and confidence around public speaking, which I know is something that will benefit me while at university. I am so excited to be joining UCL in September and could not be more grateful for the motivating and inspiring teachers and students at Hornsey”.

Being involved with the ‘Big Sister, Little Sister’ programme has been a highlight for me. I gained experience of mentoring students in Year 9 and aimed to inspire and act as a role model for them, as my teachers had with me. This programme made me realise that I enjoyed working with younger people and is part of the reason I have selected to study Social Work at university.”

More than this, teachers taught us how to be resilient; they showed us how to find solutions to solve problems and encouraged us to never give up. I am excited to start my new course at Coventry University and know I will be taking my academic achievements along with the life skills I have learnt at HSC”.

I was involved with the Futures Programme, where we had the chance to visit Cambridge for a Psychology taster session. It was a fantastic opportunity to experience what life at university could be like; it just made me want to do Psychology at university even more! It also allowed me to meet people from other schools who also had similar interests to me, which I really enjoyed. I will miss the HSC community when I move on to university; the teachers and all the students have built such good relationships over the last 2 years, where we have been able to support and hopefully inspire each other.”

Teachers always provided us with the best resources and guidance and helped to ensure we could overachieve what we initially thought, even when there had been bumps along the journey; because of this, I felt confident coming in to receive my A-Level results.”

“The support for adjustment and assistance with applying to university through UCAS was amazing. I am the first generation of my family to go to university, but the teachers made it known that they were available to help with any questions I may have. They were always approachable and made me feel confident with my application.”
