St Aloysius’ College delighted at high pass rate in first year of A-Levels
St Aloysius’ College is celebrating impressive results today in its first year of A-Level exams.
Dozens of students at the Archway school, in Hornsey Lane, are now heading off to university after achieving a pass rate of over 90 per cent.
John O’Shea, director of the Islington Sixth Form Consortium, which comprises St Aloysius and three other schools, said: “The pass rate is well over 90 per cent in the first year, which is absolutely amazing, so we’re delighted.
“We had 40 kids and 32 are going straight to university, four are going off to gap years and four are returning. To get that many students going to university in the first year is great.”
Shifat Mahbub, 18, who has just finished his AS-Levels with three As in History, Geography and ICT, said: “When I saw my results I tried to keep a straight face but I couldn’t and I screamed a little.
