Local schoolchildren achieve impressive marks in English and maths
Pupils and their teachers at schools across Merton were celebrating their GCSE results today (August 22).
72.8% of pupils at Merton’s council-controlled schools have achieved grades 9 – 4 (9 being the highest and 4 a standard pass) in both English and maths.
Schools across Merton achieved an impressive set of results in core subjects:
Merton Council’s Cabinet Member for Schools, Councillor Eleanor Stringer, who visited Ricards Lodge High School in Wimbledon, said: “It was a privilege to be invited to see pupils finding out their GCSE results and congratulate them on all their hard work. It reminded me of when I received my GCSE results and the excitement of looking forward to the future. I wish them luck whatever their next steps, particularly those staying on at our excellent post-16 provision in Merton.
“I also enjoyed meeting some of the dedicated teaching staff, whose hard work has helped to ensure that all our secondary schools have been rated as Good or Outstanding by Ofsted.”
