It was a good day for students and staff at Woodford County High School with 99percent of pupils attaining A-C in their GCSE results.

The headteacher, Jo Pomeroy, said she was particularly pleased with the outstanding achievement in “this era of curriculum change”.

Pupils headed down to the school, High Road, Woodford Green to pick up their results and 115 achieved a grade 9 in maths and English,

No fewer than eight girls achieved straight A*s across their 10 subjects and 40 students were awarded A* and As.

“We are very happy the girls have done really well,” said the headteacher.

“There was a huge amount of work from the teachers to write new content without any yard sticks from the past.

“Results in triple science, for which the whole cohort were impressive and indeed performance across the whole curriculum provided plenty to celebrate.”

She said results had been “strong” across the whole year group and many were retuning to study for their A levels
