GCSE results display hard work

Published Wednesday, 27 August 2014

This year's GCSE results demonstrate once again that young people in Enfield schools are achieving well.

From the returns received so far, 64% of Enfield pupils have secured the benchmark 5+ GCSEs at A*-C grades including English and maths, which is on track to be above the 2014 national average, and well above the 2013 average of 60%, sustaining the good improvement made last year.

Deputy Council Leader, Achilleas Georgiou, said, "This is particularly pleasing given the 'volatility' of this year's results, as described by the Standards and Testing Agency, and a national decline in English results.

"All Enfield school teachers and their students are to be congratulated for their hard work and determination."

Several individual schools have achieved significant improvements in the percentage of students achieving the benchmark; Lea Valley High School is up 8%, Winchmore 7%, Enfield County 11%, Oasis Hadley 5% and St Ignatius 10%.

Both St Anne's at 81% and Bishop Stopford’s at 71% have sustained and built on the improvements made in 2013.
