Plenty for local schools to celebrate from this year’s exam results.
To give just a few examples.
75 per cent of Hammersmith Academy pupils achieved five GCSEs at A*-C equivalent, 65 per cent achieved five A*-C including English and Maths. Across all students there were 100 A*s or equivalent (compared to last year’s 50) and 166 A grades.
The school also achieved it’s best ever A-level grades. Over 80 per cent of its pupils are going on to university.
At the West London Free School there were also excellent results – 80 per cent of pupils achieved a 4 or above in English and Mathematics (equivalent to a C or above).
Toby Young, the WLFS founder points out that 38.5 per cent of pupils at the school are eligible for Pupil Premium – well above the national average of 29.3 per cent.
Latymer Upper School achieved its best ever A* results at A Level – 34 per cent. Furthermore 100 per cent of pupils achieved A*-C in all GCSEs taken.
Warm congratulations to all concerned.
