Partnership leads to success for Chamequa, Edith and Michael

Wednesday 11 August 2021

Three students who joined The Grammar School at Leeds for the sixth form as part of a partnership aimed at providing opportunities for young people from across the city, are celebrating after scooping top A-level results.

Chamequa, Edith and Michael, all agreed that moving to GSAL had been the best decision they had made.

Chamequa, from Seacroft, joined from Leeds East Academy, and swept the board with four A*s in chemistry, physics, maths and further maths. She will study mechanical engineering at Imperial College, London.

Michael, from Armley, who arrived in the UK six years ago from Poland, with very little English, celebrated an A* in economics and As in computing and maths, and will study computer science at Leeds University. Edith, from Middleton, was delighted with her A* in sociology and As in psychology and biology and will study clinical psychology at Plymouth University. Both Edith and Michael joined GSAL from Mount St Mary’s School and are among the first recipients of an Academic Excellence Scholarship from the school, a scheme which was introduced this year to help students with the transition from school to university.

GSAL works closely with Mount St Marys and White Rose Academy Trust on a range of projects for young people.
