Staff, students and governors from The Petchey Academy are “incredibly pleased” with the school’s post-16 results, building on the impressive results last year which saw pupils achieve the highest average point score (APS) in the borough.
Despite not replicating 839, the school in Shacklewell Lane, Dalston, is delighted with the 787 APS this year, which is still higher than the national average for state schools and colleges in 2014 which stood at 680.
Every single student who applied to university has received a place, with 13 per cent of them going on to one of the Russell Group universities, and 71 per cent automatically securing places at their first choice of university.
Student principal, Cameron Watson Azmi will read Philosophy, Politics and Economics at York University and is celebrating by buying a laptop for his studies and having dinner with his girlfriend’s family and joining his friends later “after it’s all soaked in”.
He said: “10,000 hours of study have all culminated in this – the best day of my life.
