BSix and schools

BSix attracts young people from all over London. This year our students come from 191 schools. They travel from as close as Clapton, the home of BSix, and as far as Pinner in the west of London.

Many of these students go on to university including the Russell Group which consists of 24 universities committed to the very beast teaching and research. Carlo Livaja came to us from Acland Burghley school in the London borough of Camden and is now at York University studying Music Technology. Nasrudin Abdullah left Highbury Grove school in Islington, studied at BSix and, like Carlo, is now at York University but studying Accounting, Business, Finance & Management.

From Hackey Urswick school saw Tugba Pirbudak graduate from BSix to take up a place at Sheffield University to study Biochemistry and ex-Stoke Newington school pupil, Elliot Dodd, is in Birmingham University taking Computer Systems Engineering. Haringey is represented by Damian Ambrozik who is on a Mathematics degree course at Queen Mary University of London and Jacek Holubowicz, formerly of Gladesmore Community school, who is also at Queen Mary studying Computer Science. In Tower Hamlets ex-Bethnal Green Academy pupil, Hanifi Aladag, is at King’s College London taking Business Management and Maugan Dixon, formerly of Central Foundation Girls School, is studying Philosophy and Politics at Leeds.

This is not to mention students like Asta Diabate, who arrived from Italy and is now at Brasenose College Oxford on a History degree, and Eric Santos, who came from Brazil, and went on to read Mathematics and Philosophy at Glasgow.

“This is another aspect of our diversity”, says Head of Raising Aspirations Ed Durbin. "Our students come from a vast range of schools, they go on to study at a vast range of universities and in a vast range of subjects. We welcome this variety and we aim to provide an equally wide range of opportunities for students to be the best they can be”.
