Progress is outstanding with students achieving on average a whole grade higher than expected in all GCSE subjects. This has been achieved with a cohort where approximately half of students are from disadvantaged backgrounds and results achieved by these students are significantly better than similar students nationally. Our popular sixth from continues to grow. Our Key Stage 5 results are among the best in Hackney and our results for A Level and BTEC are in the top 1% of sixth forms nationally.
