Head Boy Earns Eton Place and Gains Press Attention

Earlier this year, staff members from Walworth Academy took Ahmed Roble (Head Boy) to an Open Day at the prestigious school, Eton College, after which he decided to apply. Consequently, the Year 11 student was given a conditional offer for Eton College Sixth Form where he will receive a full two year scholarship starting in September 2016. When asked how he felt about receiving the offer, Ahmed explained "I am very happy, as it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Receiving the offer has made me feel like i really have accomplished something significant."

Ahmed has been featured in local newspapers, such as The South London Press and Southwark News and today he has been featured in the national press: The Evening Standard.
