Clapton Girls' Academy
Clapton Girls’ Academy is in the top 10 per cent of sixth forms for A-level results for the third year running.
The school was celebrating some excellent results today with most of its students getting A* to C grades or distinctions and above at BTEC.
The number of girls getting grade As has gone up from 3pc to 28pc despite a national downward trend.
Sukie Jenkins, Fatema Delair and Kamara Venner all excelled in their A-levels and got A*s and A grades in subjects such as maths and physics.
Sukie has always been a high achiever at school and was "feeling great". "Clapton Girls' Academy is the most amazing and supportive place!" She said.
She is looking forward to studying politics and international relations at Bristol University.
