School excels at science
The vast majority of pupils at a school where all students sat tougher science exams for the first time achieved a top grade.
A total of 84 per cent of those who studied for a ‘Triple Science’ GCSE at Woodford County High School achieved an A*, while 99 per cent scored grade C or above.
Almost 94 per cent of students achieved five A* to C grades in other traditional subjects, such as English and Maths.
Headteacher Ms Jo Pomeroy said: “Students performed very well indeed at GCSE this year, securing impressive results across the curriculum.”
Star students included Monica Mittal, who achieved ten A*s and an A and will study Economics, History, Maths and Further Maths at A-level
Tasnim Ali also got ten A*s and one A despite revising while putting up with the disruption of the loft at her home being converted.
Miss Ali, who has always wanted to be a doctor, is staying on to study Biology, Chemistry, Maths and History.
Mum, Shamim Ali, 43, of Highwood Gardens, said: “It’s such a relief.
“I shouldn’t be surprised.
“She has consistently performed at this level.”
