Haringey Learning Partnership
Celebrates Remarkable Success on GCSE Results Day 2023
Mia and Amario at No 10 Downing Street
Two of our students enjoyed a rare and exciting opportunity this week to visit the Prime Minister’s residence. Amario and Mia were invited by Oxfam to join some of their team in presenting a petition at Number 10 Downing Street. The petition, which has garnered nearly 45000 signatures, demands that the Government increase humanitarian aid to alleviate the risk of famine in East Africa. At present, over 28 million people across Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan are already experiencing extreme hunger. Countries in East Africa are now spiralling towards famine due to a deadly combination of climate change, conflict and the cost-of-living crisis. Amario and Mia are well- known to Oxfam, as they have worked with them on their ‘Send My Friend to School’ campaign, which seeks to address the need for more funding to promote global education, especially in crisis-affected countries. They are well versed in lobbying, having already met senior government ministers and the shadow Foreign Secretary at a reception in Parliament. They so impressed the Oxfam team that they were chosen for this task.
Send My Friend to School
Amario and Mia had an amazing opportunity of joining Oxfam, Action Against Hunger | ACF-USA and many others. The students went to Lobby MP's for Britain to lead the way by providing real and impactful support to help the countries in East Africa with the serve famine that they are experiencing now.

Results Day 25 August 2022
Haringey Learning Partnership Press Release 25.08.22
Amazing Outcomes in Alternative Provision
As we know, young people nationally have had their education disrupted over the last three years but those who attend alternative provision schools like Haringey Learning Partnership (HLP) have faced additional challenges in their educational journey. Students usually join HLP as a result of their previous school placement having broken down, whether through ill-health, behaviour issues or other difficulties.
Despite these challenges, students at HLP proved that they can achieve just as well as their peers in mainstream schools. At Commerce House, in Wood Green, 80% of HLP’s Year 11 students achieved eight or more qualifications, with 30% achieving an astonishing ten qualifications.
Star performers included Maryam Kazmi who achieved grade 6+ in all her subjects, including three grade 8s in Maths and Combined Science and a grade 7 in Further Maths. Maryam is keen to start her A-Levels in September and has ambitions to study medicine at university in the future.
Demi-Lee Monk-Trattou was overjoyed with her eight qualifications, which included a grade 5 in GCSE Art and Design. Demi’s creativity will be invaluable as she moves on to college to study Hair and Beauty in September.
Over at Pulford House, in Tottenham, Ellie Soyka walked away with five GCSEs at grade 4+ including a brilliant grade 6 in GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition. Her peer, Rose Hanson, a fantastic artist, achieved a well-deserved grade 6 in GCSE Art and Design. Rose is heading to college to study fashion and has dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
HLP’s Tuition in the Community students also achieved some incredible grades this year, with Nye Edwards picking up grade 8s and above in all his subjects, including the highest possible grade 9s in Combined Science and Maths GCSEs. Nye will move on to study A-Levels with HLP next year, at the new post-16 provision, Philip House.
Gerry Robinson, Executive Headteacher of HLP said: “We’re incredibly proud of every single one of our Year 11 students. Our students often join HLP feeling less than positive about themselves and their life chances. Our job is to help get them back on track, so that they emerge prepared to make a positive contribution wherever they go next. I want to thank our tremendous team of staff who have gone above and beyond to support our young people through this challenging period. Thank you also to our fantastic families who really do work in partnership with us. This set of GCSE results proves that, with the right support, students who attend alternative provision schools can and do achieve great success.”
First Story -A kind of Surprise
This week a brand-new anthology of writing by Haringey Learning Partnership students was launched at a fantastic event at Commerce House. ‘A Kind of Surprise’ is a powerful collection of poems written by Year 11 students who spent a year working alongside HLP’s Writer-In-Residence, Ashley Hickson-Lovence.
