Zuhaira, who is going on to read History and Politics, said:

“My two years at JCC have been an incredible experience. The support I’ve had from my teachers in every subject has been phenomenal. Additionally, I have made lifelong memories and friends here. I really do appreciate everything the college has done to help me”

Abubakar, who is going on to read Social and Political Sciences, adds:

“I am delighted with my A-Level results, a satisfying end to 2 years of hard work. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my teachers who have gone above and beyond to help me fulfil my potential. I would also like to give a special mention to Rosie Shale who supported me throughout my Cambridge application. JCC is an exceptional place and the support offered by the staff is notable, and I am grateful for my time there. I hope my achievements can serve as an inspiration for people from similar backgrounds.”

Tony Day, Principal at Joseph Chamberlain College, commented:

“Despite this most difficult of years, we are delighted to celebrate the successes of Zuhaira and Abubakar, as they prepare to take up their places at Oxford and Cambridge. I know how they will both thrive in their studies during the years ahead. As always, I am very proud of the achievements of all of the students at Joseph Chamberlain College and seeing them progress to their chosen universities is the highlight of every academic year.”

We wish them all the best of luck in the future.
