Haringey students and teachers celebrate best GCSE results ever
Young people across Haringey have plenty to smile about after achieving the borough’s best ever GCSE results.
Out of a total number of 2,200 pupils, 63.6 per cent gained five or more GCSE A* to C grades including English and maths.
This represents a five per cent increase on last year’s figure and the greatest improvement since 2011.
Councillor Claire Kober, the leader of Haringey Borough Council, said the results meant progress was being made to ensure Haringey has some of the best schools in London.
She said: “The rate of Haringey’s improvement at GCSE level for 2013 is simply phenomenal and shows that we are working together to deliver outstanding education across the borough.
“One of our Outstanding for All commitments is to ensure that our schools’ exam results are among the very best in London.
“This year’s figures prove we are making great progress towards meeting that ambition.
“This is a fantastic effort and I congratulate all of our pupils, parents, carers, teaching staff and governors on their outstanding achievements.”
The cabinet member for children, Cllr Ann Waters, said the students’ hard work was reflected in their grades.
She added: “It was wonderful to see so many happy young people who have worked so hard in their studies.
“It really shows what Haringey’s young people can do and I wish them every success in the future.”
