Press Release

Walthamstow School for Girls, Headteacher Meryl Davies, said: “I am very proud of our students who have worked consistently well throughout their time at Walthamstow School for Girls. Teachers worked with great integrity to ensure that students were awarded fair and consistent grades based on their prior performance, therefore the school has maintained its outstanding track record of progress and attainment”.

Meryl continues speaking about some of her student’s achievements: “Imaan Ansar was awarded eight grade 9s and two grade 8s in her subjects. Since joining Walthamstow School for Girls in Year 7, Imaan has been a very conscientious student, consistently making exceptional progress across all her subjects and we are extremely proud of what she has achieved. Imaan has a lifelong ambition of pursuing a career in medicine and we know she will achieve this. We wish her well in the future! Brianna Gittens and Ayan Younis are both students in Year 11 who have shown a great level of commitment to their GCSE studies and have worked well at our school. Both girls achieved eight grade 9s and will be attending the colleges of their choice.”
