GCSE results: Redbridge pupils record borough’s best ever grades
Redbridge pupils have been praised for their “magnificent achievement” by producing the borough’s best ever set of GCSE results despite the national figures falling.
This year, 70.8 per cent of students achieved five A* to Cs including English and maths, an increase of 2.4 per cent from 2011.
The number of pupils gaining five A* to Gs is up to 98.4 per cent from the previous year’s 96.4 per cent figure.
Students achieving five A* to Cs excluding English and maths has also risen by 5.1 per cent.
Cllr Alan Weinberg, cabinet member for children’s services, said: “In the last three years the borough’s GCSE results have improved by 6.3 per cent which is a magnificent achievement especially when we know some schools across the country have struggled this year.
