Students and staff at Walthamstow Academy are celebrating today after receiving their highest ever GCSE results.
69% of students achieved five or more A* to C grades including English and maths, up from 59% last year. The results are the best ever received by the academy.
Emma Skae, Principal of Walthamstow Academy, said:
“These are impressive results which demonstrate our strengths as a school. They are testament to the hard work of all our students and staff and I’d like to congratulate them all on their achievements.
“We are relentless in encouraging our students to work hard and reach their potential and so it is always a pleasure to see students gaining grades that will make such a positive difference to their futures. By gaining these qualifications, more and more of our students will be able to enter our Sixth Form and begin courses that will lead to university.”
These figures build on the strong set of A Level results achieved by the academy last week. The academy celebrated a 100% pass rate and 83% of all entries were graded A*-C. Furthermore, the academy’s Year 12 students secured excellent AS Level results as nearly half (44%) of entries achieved A*-B grades and 28% were awarded the top A* or A grades.
