Headteacher Anne Hudson said 53 per cent of girls who took their exams this summer walked away with at least five A*-C grades, including English and maths, up six percentage points from 47 per cent last year.

The overall A*-G pass rate for the College Terrace school in Bow was 90 per cent and 76 per cent of girls got five or more GCSEs at grade A*-C, compared to 70 per cent in 2009, and the percentage gaining 3 A or A* grades has gone up, too, from 23 per cent to 32 per cent.

Dr Hudson said; “It really goes to show that if you implement good teaching practices and stick to them the students achieve more.

“That’s what we’ve done and we’ve made a great improvement on last year so I’m really pleased; it’s all about raising achievement.

“Our great success story is our drama department in which 97 per cent of our pupils got between an A* and a C.”

This year (2010) with had 84 students going through sixth form public exams, as compared with 75 last year. We are pleased that our sixth form is becoming more inclusive and managing to sustain high levels of achievement.
