Enfield school celebrates best ever grades
Students and staff at a school in Enfield rejoiced after achieving their best ever GCSE results.
Edmonton County School in Great Cambridge Road, Edmonton saw a huge jump in their grades, with 51 per cent of students achieving five or more A* to C grades in 2012 compared with 65 per cent this year.
This leaves the school above the national average of 58 per cent and finishes off a superb seven days for the school after it celebrated its best ever A Level results last Thursday.
Headteacher Dr Susan Tranter said: “I am absolutely delighted by the results we have had this year, it is a really fantastic achievement by the school.
Dr Tranter also revealed she had suffered sleepless nights as she waited to hear the news.
She said: “We received the results on Wednesday so at the start of the week I wasn’t sleeping. It was very nerve-racking but despite all the media focus around grades dropping, we have produced some fantastic grades and our pupils have done so well.”
Erkin Salih pulled off a stunning set of grades, about which he was very calm and collected. He said: “I managed to get seven A*s and four As. When I saw the results I was quite satisfied with what I had got, my family are very proud and I am now closer to doing computer science in the future.”
Deputy headteacher Paul Miller has put the success down to extra lessons and the new leadership team.
He said: “Our leadership team has now been here for two years and we have really focussed on galvanising the results with extra lessons and closer monitoring of student progress and they have come up with the goods.”
