|Hounslow Schools Improve A-level Position|
Borough's sixth formers deliver best ever results
Students across Hounslow are celebrating after achieving yet another set of record-breaking A-level results.
Nine of the borough’s schools saw an increase in the rate of A-level grades (A*-C) achieved from 2010. At the higher end of the grades, A*-B grades accounted for 50% of examination entries, a 2% increase on last year’s results.
Across the borough, 98 per cent of students obtained a pass grade in their A-levels, a result above the national average.
There were striking improvements in top grades at Gumley House Convent and Chiswick Community School, where 9.9% of students attained an A* grade.
The majority of BTEC students across Hounslow were also offered their first choice at university. This includes excellent results with many double and triple distinctions at a number of schools in the borough. Eight students have had their places confirmed at Oxford University and Cambridge University, with a host of others off to prestigious universities across the country.
Cllr Steve Curran, Hounslow Council’s cabinet member for education said, “I’m extremely proud of Hounslow's students for their hard work and the sustained improvement we have achieved across our schools in the borough.
“It’s so pleasing to see so many happy faces, and with the hard work of the students, their teachers, parents and governors all paying off at this moment, they can move onto the next stage of their lives and I wish them every success for the future.”
