Zoe Browne, 18 from Finsbury Park who met the Mayor was celebrating three As in History, Business and Religious Studies. 

Zoe said: "I am so grateful to everyone who helped me; the staff at City and Islington College and especially my old deputy head Ms Haynes at Mount Carmel where I took my GCSEs.

"If it had not been for everyone's support I would not have gone on to do my A Levels.


Grace Vermenako:

Triple Distinctions(DDD)

"Grace Vermenko achieved Triple Distinctions in BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Travel and Tourism. The former Mount Carmel School pupil will be going to the University of Surrey to study Business. She said 'the teachers are all determined for everyone to pass. You must focus, focus, focus if you are determined, you will pass and get far in life.'"



From Mount Carmel

to Medicine

Two former students of the college, Negin Amairi and Folasade Adu returned to talk to students in years 7 and 8 about their career paths into Medicine. Negin and Folasade are year 4 medical students studying at University College Hospital. They spoke about their time here at Mount Carmel and sixth form. They also talked about their decision to become doctors and where they are now.

Our student doctors answered questions from the audience and encouraged the year 7 and 8 students to work hard now and to strive to achieve because they are proof that if you work hard and never give up you will achieve your goals.


Alumni Student's Chance to Study at

Universities in the United States

Kara and Chloe former students at Mount Carmel are finalists of the Sutton Trust Programme, which provides students with the opportunity to visit and apply to Universities in America.

The Sutton Trust USA programme was established last year, with the aim is to give talented UK state school students the opportunity to apply to universities in America and also to give them a taste of American university life through taking them on a week long trip to Yale or to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

In June Chloe and Kara will sit the real ACT exam, in October and begin the application process to American universities and in November. Kara currently studies A-Level biology, chemistry, politics and philosophy. Whilst Chloe is studying A-Level English literature and language, history, philosophy and maths.

Congratulations to both students for reaching the last 150 students and college wishes them luck in getting a university place in the United States.

Alumni Student's work with Local Food


A former student from Mount Carmel is working closely with a food warehouse at the Angel, the project, organised by Tufnell Park-based church House on the Rock, to expand their bank into King’s Cross. The charity provides food, donated by shoppers and supermarkets, to people struggling on low incomes.

Mabinty Koroma the events manager and former student of Mount Carmel, said:?“We see people who feel ashamed that they can’t afford to feed their families. We also offer them advice and tell them that they are not alone.”

The foodbank provides a box of items which should last a week, including tea, coffee, cereal, milk, vegetables, meat, fish, pasta, juice and treats such as biscuits, chocolate and a pudding.
