Dear Parents and Carers,

Another GCSE record-breaking year for Walthamstow School for Girls

GCSE students at Walthamstow School for Girls have achieved the school’s best ever GCSE results for the third year running, with a provisional 73% attaining success at A*-C grade in five or more subjects including English and Mathematics.   This includes an increase of 6.5% in students receiving A* or A grades with 32% of entrants achieving five or more A* or A grades.   Results in the Ebacc subjects are up by 4.5%.

Walthamstow School for Girls has well exceeded the reported national average in Mathematics results with 78% of students achieving A*-C grades compared to the national average of 63% (28% of Mathematics grades at WSFG were A* or A).    The students also shone in English with 85% achieving A*-C grades, compared to the national average of 65%, with 26% of WSFG students achieving A* or A grades.  Having won a national award during the last academic year as one of the sixteen highest achieving schools in the country for Pupil Premium students, the gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium students at the school has continued to narrow this year.

Students arrived early on 20th August to collect their results and the majority of girls were brimming with pride and excitement at their grades.    Headteacher, Meryl Davies, paid tribute to the girls saying “I am so proud of our students; yet again our hard-working and capable girls have achieved the examination success they deserve and which will stand them in good stead for their future education and careers.  I also acknowledge the part played by the high calibre, dedicated teaching and support staff at the school, without whom these results would not have been possible.  Last year the school won several national awards for achievement and I am delighted to see that our results have improved still further this year.”

Best wishes

Meryl Davies
