Astonishing GCSE Results 2018! Posted on: 23/08/2018

Astonishing GCSE Results 2018!

Congratulations to all our students who achieved a brilliant set of GCSE results this summer. We are all extremely proud of your accomplishments. This year our girls achieved the highest num-ber of top grades (7+/A/A*) ever. We wish year 11 leavers the best of luck in their future endeav-ours. Here are some words of advice from some of our top grade girls for the next generation of GCSE students! Iman Hassoun Achieved 6 grade 9s this year! "My advice is to make sure that you understand all the content as you go along and to not be afraid to ask questions. This will ensure that revision is easy and quick as you are not relearning or learning con-tent. Also, do lots of exam practice (including treating your mocks like the real exam) so that you familiarise yourself with the mark scheme. My last advice is to enjoy what you’re learning and have fun, if you try your best you'll achieve your best. Good luck." Fatima Osman  Achieved 6 grade 9s this year!   "My advice is to use all of the resources provided and make sure to always ask for extra things. However, you should only go to clubs if you actually feel you will benefit from them (not just because your friends are going); if you have gone over the content already, maybe use that time to do some independent study instead to revise over things you actually need, so when exam season comes along, you don’t feel like you’ve wasted any time throughout the year and you’ve done your best." Caitlin Russell Achieved 14 GCSEs- all grade 7/A and above- in her time at EGA! My advice is to take it slow, don’t do loads of revision even leading up to exams, just spread it evenly across spring/summer terms. Don’t let yourself feel guilty about not working, either do it or just forget about it for a second and relax.  
Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge Finals 2017 Posted on: 15/12/2017

Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge Finals 2017

In 2016, I won the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge for Islington. It was an amazing feeling and a great honour. My speech was about encouraging self-belief and all my friends and family were both supportive and proud. After winning the challenge, I had the opportunity to visit the University of Cambridge to talk to the admission tutor about how to develop a successful application in the future! I'm very grateful to the Jack Petchey foundation for such a great opportunity. As last year's winner, the Finals for this year were held at my school, so on Thursday 7th December 2017, I was the MC and host. It was so much fun! At first I was extremely nervous but as I carried on going and saw my family, friends and teachers in the audience cheering me on, I got into my zone and really enjoyed myself. There were so many amazing speakers talking about topics they were clearly passionate about; Sagal Mohammed Ali and Tanisha Mahone in year 10 represented EGA at the competition. They were so inspiring and made EGA extremely proud. Their speeches were about’ The Importance of Stories’ and ‘Love is Blind’. The event went very smoothly and it wouldn't have been anywhere near as wonderful if it wasn’t for the hard work of Ms Faux and support from other EGA teachers for organising the event. The music performance conducted by Alison Campbell and performed by the year 11s of EGA was absolutely fantastic.  I would like to thank everyone who had a contribution to this spectacular event and for all the support the speakers received on what was a really memorable evening. What an amazing experience!
