Best-ever GCSE results at Bow School with 61pc top grades
Pupils at Bow School in London’s East End are celebrating today’s record-breaking GCSE results—the best ever in its history.
The boys’ secondary, which becomes co-ed late next year, managed 61 per cent with five or more A* to C grades including English and maths. It was a rise of 10 per cent on last year’s grades and 17 per cent since 2010.
Overall, 39 per cent achieved at least three A* or A grades with many getting more than three top grades.
Top achievers include Abdul Wahab and Rubayed Ahmed who each netted nine A* and A grades, while Partha Dey and Nahim Ahad each gained eight A*s and As.
“The school has far exceeded its targets,” said Head teacher Cath Smith. “We’re consolidating our trend for consistent progress and improvement.
