Hackney students have achieved yet another year of record breaking exam results - beating the national average in both GCSE and A-level results.
This year 61.1% of borough students achieved five good GCSE (A* to C) grades including maths and English – up 0.6% from last year.
Three quarters of Hackney schools saw their students beat the national average – the highest number ever. Clapton Girls’ Academy had 70% of students achieving these grades – 10% above the school’s previous highest results.
For A-levels, well over half Hackney’s A Level entries achieved the highest A*, A, B grades, outperforming students nationally
Cllr Rita Krishna, Cabinet member for Children’s Services said:"Once again, young people in Hackney have been rewarded for their hard work and dedication and can be proud of these excellent results. These grades show continued improvement in our schools with more students than ever before achieving top marks. I am confident that the pupils will continue to build on this success and enjoy a bright future."
