This results day was a day of celebration, not just for students, but staff too – including Holly, an Ark trainee teacher, who was, for the first time, seeing students she had trained and supported all year get their exam results. We went along to capture that nerve-wracking and emotional moment.
There have been some incredible success stories, including:
- Maan (pictured), whose family fled from Iraq after suffering persecution under Saddam Hussein, is off to study History and Politics at Oxford – something he says he couldn’t have achieved without the help of his English teacher Mr Davison.
- Daniel, who is reaching for the stars at Harvard after Ark Burlington Danes.
- Helenswood student Natasha, who refused to let being hit by a car impact her exams.
Our teachers play a huge part in this success. Join us and make an incredible difference to young people’s lives – and, like Holly, see the difference that you are making, every single day.
