Students across Wandsworth are celebrating as the borough's GCSE results improved again this year to reach a new record high.

Provisional results show that the proportion of students achieving five or more A* - C grades including the core subjects of English and Maths has increased by six percentage points to reach 58.7 per cent.

Some schools made particularly strong progress including John Paul II and Battersea Park where the proportion of students gaining five or more higher grade passes including English and Maths went up by 20 points.

Impressive improvements were also made at Southfields (12 points), St Cecilia’s (12 points), Graveney (11 points) and Elliott (7 points).

Executive member for education and children's services Kathy Tracey said:

"Congratulations to all of our hard working students on this outstanding set of results. Once again we’ve seen a strong improvement on last year and a new benchmark has been set. 

“We're extremely proud of the high standards of education we provide here in Wandsworth. It’s no wonder our schools are so popular”

Validated results will be available from the Department for Education in January next year.

The proportion of Wandsworth students to achieve five or more A*-C grades in any subject improved by 8 points to reach 81.2 per cent.

    Thanks for that resounding support Nicola. Do you know what the future will be for JP II, now St John Bosco isn't happening?

    Well done to the students and staff at John Paul II School and especially Eddie Conway who is moving on to an outstanding school in Watford. Progress by 20% on last years results must make it one of the most improved schools in London.
