Principal praises ‘exceptional’ WestKing students as they celebrate A Level results

Among this year’s top performing students in this year’s A Levels were Sophie Campbell, Nayhomi Esaw, Samuel Pozas Perilla, Tuang Cong Dinh, Jade Cornwall-Richards and Nathaniel Dowding.

Sophie, 20, who achieved an A* in English Literature and Bs in History and Psychology, is heading to Tokyo University to study Japanese.

She said: “I felt okay this morning. I wasn’t very nervous at all and looking forward to celebrating with my friends. If I was to give future A Level students a bit of advice on their studies, I would tell them to be organised and work hard and you’ll get the results you deserve.”

Nayhomi, 20, attained three As in Chemistry, Biology and Maths, said: “I’m very happy with my results. I checked with UCAS this morning, so knew I had got into university but was keen to know what grades I got. I was expecting a B in Chemistry, so I was quite surprised to get an A.

“My teachers were very supportive. If I had any questions on particular topics, I could contact them on Teams or email and they always responded quickly. They also gave lots of past exam paper questions, which was very useful in preparing how to answer the questions for the exams.”

Samuel, 20, is looking to study Politics and International Relations at university after gaining an A in Spanish and Politics and a B in Sociology.

“I was really nervous this morning. The teachers were the most important factor during my two years. They were absolutely amazing and very helpful,” he said.

WestKing also saw many students achieve Distinction grades on Level 3 Extended Diploma courses, which are equivalent to three A Levels and accepted by most universities.

Elizabeth Azuero, Joan Martinez and Nuria Morocho Casco are all heading to university after achieving Distinctions on a Music Performance and Production Extended Level 3 Diploma.

Nuria, 18, said: “We did a lot of work outside the college working on our projects, doing research, writing blogs about everything and evaluations. I worked hard, stayed focused and made the best of my time at college.”

Offering her advice to prospective students, Elizabeth, 24, added: “If you want to do something and become successful in the future, work hard and make the most of every opportunity.”

Joshua Ofege, 18, is heading to the University of Kent to study Computer Science after gaining a DDM on an Engineering Level 3 Extended Diploma.

He said: “I am very happy with my grades. I called my parents and they were very happy and excited. The teachers helped me a lot. They gave me a lot of materials to help with studying and guided me on what to study at home.”

WestKing offers a wide range of A Levels, T Levels, technical and vocational courses such as BTECs, and apprenticeships across its centres in central London.

Jasbir Sondhi, Vice Principal of Westminster Kingsway College, said: “I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to our exceptional students on their fantastic A Level results.

“They have worked incredibly hard and shown great commitment throughout their studies and I wish them every success in the next chapter of their lives.

“I would also like to recognise the invaluable role played by our teachers and staff and thank them for the unwavering support and guidance that has been instrumental in shaping their educational journey.”
