Top marks for scholarships at King’s Leadership Academy Liverpool





King’s Leadership Academy Liverpool has seen five students achieve the grades they need to win a scholarship to continue their studies at some of the best schools in the country. King’s Liverpool in Dingle works with a charity that sponsors high-achieving students to continue their studies at top colleges nationwide. Among the outstanding performers is Logan Riley. He gained eight grade 7 – 9 GCSEs and will continue his studies at St Edward’s School in Oxford. Logan only joined King’s Leadership Academy Liverpool in 2021 and faced the challenge of joining his year group during the lockdown when his family moved back from Spain. Joining him on a scholarship is Tirej Al Joul Bek, whose determination and hard work led to him achieving higher-than-predicted grades across all subjects. His success means he can take up a place through the scholarship programme at St Peter’s York studying A-levels in maths, biology and chemistry. Joann Chondol was over the moon to have achieved better than expected results, securing her scholarship place at St Mary’s Oxford. Joann is also off to study A-levels in maths, biology and chemistry and acknowledged the support given by teachers Dr Davies and Mrs Weaver. Other scholarship students have gained places at Dulwich College in London and the Royal Masonic School for Girls Rickmansworth. Scott Cordon, principal at King’s Liverpool, said: “This is a strong performance by our Year 11s who have faced unprecedented challenges in their time in secondary school and all of them can be rightly proud of their achievements. “There have also been some notable successes and everyone here at King’s Liverpool is delighted that 100% of the students offered scholarship places have attained the required grades. “It is particularly pleasing that some of them have overcome significant personal challenges and shown determination to succeed.”
