Kantor King Solomon High School is celebrating as more than three quarters of pupils achieved passes in GCSE English and maths.

Headteacher Matthew Slater said: “I am so proud and delighted for the entire school, that we have maintained our amazing success at GCSE.

“The staff, students, parents, governors and the entire community have committed to the success of our school.

“These results are testament to the focus, determination, skill and tenacity of our teaching staff and our students.

“This school continues to thrive. It is my honour and privilege to lead this magnificent institution.”

Many pupils gained marks beyond what was expected, and will be attending sixth form at the school, in Forest Road, Barkingside, in September.

The school said the new measures of Progress 8 and Attainment 8 were also very positive.

Particular highlights included Ishan Gulati, who got seven A*s and two As, Aimee Cohen and Prince Ahmed, who received seven A*s and an A.

This is the first year of the new numerical grading system for English and maths, with marks between 1 and 9 – with 9 being the highest.

The Recorder has worked out that 4 is approximately a C grade, 6 equals a B grade and 7 equals an A grade.
