A THIRD of all A-Level results are top A and B grades among school-leavers in London’s deprived East End.

More students have taken and passed A and AS levels with a marked increase in A and B grades compared to last year, according to Tower Hamlets council.

Provisional results show 96 per cent achieved A-to-E grades, getting close to the national average after several years of under achievement.

The Head of Sixth Form at Bishop Challoner Secondary, Patrick Robbins, said: “Many have got places at some of the most prestigious universities in the country and others have achieved more than they thought possible.”

Results from some schools were still outstanding’ last night, according to the council, so the results are provisional.
