Students and staff at Walthamstow Academy are celebrating after achieving the academy’s best ever GCSE results. 62% of students achieved five or more A* to C grades including English and maths compared to 55% last year. In total, 93% of students achieved five or more GCSEs at grades A* to C, up from 87% last year.
Emma Skae, Principal of Walthamstow Academy, said:
'We are very pleased with these results which are our best yet! Students have worked incredibly hard and thoroughly deserve these results. Each year since we opened in 2006, our results have outperformed those of the year before, demonstrating the huge strides forward the academy is making.
'These results would not have been possible without the commitment and hard work of our staff and I would like to thank them for everything they do for our students.'
Last week, the academy achieved a strong set of A Level results. Nearly half (49%) of A Level and equivalent entries achieved A*-B grades.
