The second cohort of Year-13s have managed “brilliant A Level results” at East London Science School which only opened eight years ago. 

They’re now “ready to make an impact on the world,” their headteacher believes.

The Year-13s follow last year’s cohort that graduated in 2020 who were the original Year-7s when the school first opened at Bromley-by-Bow in 2012. 

“This is an incredibly important moment for our students,” interim principal Mark Taylor said. “Many have had to stand on their own feet intellectually to get to this point.

"They are ready for university and to make a real impact on the world.”
