City Academy, Hackney students have been lauded for their ‘exceptional’ GCSE results.
Students at the Homerton Row school achieved 74per cent passes in English and maths and at least three other GCSE subjects.
The City Academy, Hackney first opened in 2009 as a co-educational secondary school and sixth form. Since then the school has received two “outstanding” grades from Ofsted.
Principal Mark Malcolm said: “Students have achieved exceptional results in their GCSE exams.
“They have risen to the challenge of the new specifications and have made outstanding progress. Students have been well-prepared for the new linear examinations and shown resilience and dedications to their studies.
“It is our expectation that they are entered for the broadest curriculum choices, with all students taking a humanities subject and most entered for the separate science qualifications, a modern foreign language and a creative subject too.
“They now have the widest choice available to them and can enrol on academic courses.”
