Excellent Progress in GCSE Examinations

Huge congratulations to all Clifton students collecting results today. You worked hard, believed in yourselves and dreamed big. We wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavours – you will be great.

Once again, Clifton students have demonstrated excellent progress in their GCSE examinations. The top three performers were:
– Alijah Mustafa with four Grade 9s and 5 Grade 8s, firmly placing him in the top 5% in the country and demonstrating his all-round academic ability.
– Kami Sabir, who with hard work and determination, achieved three Grade 8s and six Grade 7s.
– Irsa Nawaz who successfully attained a Grade 9, A, two Grade 8s and three Grade 7s.

Other outstanding results included Joe Woods, who got three Grade 7s, Siyam Hussain with two Grade 8s and four Grade 7s, Juste Zupilate who achieved two Grade 8s and Aminah Mahmood who achieved a Grade 8 and three Grade 7s. Artan Dehbozorgi, who since his arrival to Year 11 at Clifton has seized every opportunity also secured an excellent set of GCSE results (one Grade 9, A, three Grade 8s, two Grade 6s and a L2M).


Another exceptional achiever in the Clifton cohort of 2019 is Shoaib Shafia, who accomplished an A* for A Level maths.
All of these students are progressing to the next stage in their academic journey at Sixth Form, where they will study a range of A Level courses. They will no doubt continue to be excellent ambassadors of the Clifton Way.

Well done cohort of 2019. Your commitment to learning, resilience and hard work has paid off and Clifton is celebrating their best ever progress results. We wish you all excellent luck for the future.

Y11 Snatch Defeat From The Jaws of Victory

Having won a close game 2-1 the last time we locked horns with Wickersley, we knew that we were going to face a tough battle on a sticky surface. We started slightly the better of the two teams and were passing the ball confidently but chances were few and far between for either side. We took the lead through Faisal Khairy with a shot from outside the area that caught the home keeper by surprise. We held our lead until the break.

We were aware that Wickersley would carry the fight to us in the second half. They did this in the opening minutes when two brilliant blocks from full back Jack Johnson preserved our lead. At the other end we were struggling to create many chances and a similar goal to our opener drew the home side level.

We came out and played more on the front foot with Wickersley playing on the break. They were still creating the clearer chances though and a breakaway led to a one on one with the forward rounding keeper Rio Barker. Jack somehow managed to get back and scramble the ball off the line.

It looked as though both sides would have to settle for a draw but with 30 seconds to go more heroic blocks in our defence gained no reward as Wickersley managed to steal the win. Disappointment for our boys but lots of heart and effort and great conduct. Louis Waterhouse gained the man of the match award. He was pushed all the way by skipper Brendan Walker.

Y11 Football Team Visit Wembley For England Vs Lituanaia

Last Sunday we took the Year 11 football team to Wembley to watch England play Lithuania in a World Cup qualifying match. What a day! After getting fuelled up with a Morissons breakfast in preparation for the long journey we headed off down the M1. When we arrived, we soaked up the atmosphere and stopped by the famous Bobby Moore statue. After heading to our seats we then enjoyed a cracking 90 minutes of football which saw a comfortable England win.

Mr Hall’s prediction competition was also a big hit with the lads. The students were once again a credit to Clifton and great fun to be with.
