Cabot federation students are set to soar
Published on: 26 Aug 2016
TWO pioneers of the innovative Boomsatsuma Agency, based at Bristol Metropolitan Academy in Fishponds, are off to university after successfully completing the course.
Abdisalan Mohamed, who joined the academy when new to the UK in Year 9, secured an unconditional place at London Metropolitan University to study Drama and Heena Ahmed is off to UWE off to study Sociology.
Other students in the CLF Post 16, part of the Cabot Learning Federation, achieved success in the more traditional A-level route, among them Katie George, who will be read English at Oxford University, having gained all A* and A grades.
Set for Cambridge after a gap year teaching English in China is Lauren Pratt, who achieved A*s in all her subjects after battling back following surgery for a brain tumour six years ago. Lauren is planning to do a degree in linguistics.
Director of CLF Post 16, Kath Cooper, said: “I am immensely proud of the way in which our students have applied themselves to their studies and developed as individuals during their time as Post 16 students. I feel confident that they will go on to achieve well on the courses they are going to and will be the rounded citizens our community needs. It is great to see the mix of outstanding academic and vocational achievement. Well done to our students and the staff that work so hard to teach and support them.”
