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.

“These results reflect the commitment of students, staff, parents and governors.”

Bow School moves to a new campus next June, followed in September, 2014, by introducing girls as well as an expanded Sixth Form, in partnership with other schools grouped as Sixth Form East.
