Staff at Phoenix Academy in Shepherds Bush are celebrating the first of their students to go on to study medicine, following this year’s A-level results.

Siham Omar achieved As in biology and psychology, and a B in chemistry, to earn herself a place at King's College London studying medicine.

Executive headteacher, Oli Knight, said: “We are delighted that the hard work and perseverance of our students has paid off this year.

“We have had some exceptional individual performances, including Siham’s.

“Alongside these we have seen an almost 10 per cent increase in results from last year. The average point score, or grade per entry is up from last year at 19.63, and the number of top grades A*-B is also up from last year.

“Good luck to all students - we wish you well in the future.”
