Our sensational sixth formers!
Another extraordinary group of sixth form students leave Bow School for top universities with outstanding results
We are thrilled that students’ results have improved once again, both in A Levels and BTECs. Almost a third of students achieved 3A*-A grades, building on last year’s success which saw students go to Cambridge University for the first time. Amongst these key headline figures we’ve also seen some inspiring individual stories.
Former Head Boy, Elmer, who joined us from Manorfield Primary School, leaves us having secured an A* in Chemistry and two As in Maths and Biology. He now intends to take a gap year before pursuing a medical career. Of his time at Bow he said: “The pastoral care at Bow is superb. Beyond just lessons, teachers know what students need to be successful.”

Another of our graduates, Aysu, is moving on to study Business Management at Greenwich University. One of our star BTEC students, she is today celebrating D* D* D* in Business. Of her experience at Bow she stated: “The amazing support we received while learning remotely is typical of the school. Despite not being in the classroom, teachers were committed and always accessible so that our education didn’t suffer.”
We have several students moving to King’s College London, ranked as one of the top 10 universities in the world. Among them is Jame, who achieved A*s in all four of his subjects. He was quick to comment on how the sixth form’s size has helped him: “Our small classes means that you get more focus on you as an individual than you would do elsewhere. It also means teachers are always available to help when you need it.”
We also have students going to live outside London, including Nia who has accepted a place at Manchester University to study English Literature after achieving two As and an A*. A passionate supporter of Bow School, she hopes her and her peers’ success inspires the next generation of students. Her advice is: “Don’t feel pressured by other people’s targets. Focus on your interests and set your mind to achieving the best you can.”
