On meeting some of the students, the Mayor of Islington said:

“They have all done so well to achieve their results and I wish them well as they go on to pursue their hopes and dreams.”

Hayri Aslan Kocaman was one of the highest achieving students at the school, receiving three distinction stars in his BTEC results. He’ll be going on to study art animation at the SAE institute in Hackney.
