Excellent GCSE results from Year 11 students at Wapping High School have been warmly welcomed by governors and staff. Our first-ever exam results, from the student intake who joined the newly founded school in 2012, show 73% of pupils achieving Grade 4 and above in English and Maths, and 62% achieving Grade 5 and above.
In addition, the 32% of Wapping High School students who achieved the EBacc - widely recognised as a key indicator of a broad education - was significantly higher than the 2016 national average of 23%.
A number of students Imane Aliane, Ornob Miah, Ananda Kupfer also got straight A’s and above. We couldn’t be prouder! Not only this but just a few years ago, student Ornob Miah couldn’t speak English and now he has achieved brilliant results, what an inspiration!
Head teacher Gary Nelson commented: 'I am delighted by these results. It is particularly pleasing to see the high percentage of our students achieving at GCSE Grade 8 - the old A* grade.'
Chair of Governors Kerstyn Comley commented, 'These great results cap another positive year for Wapping High School and launch our students towards the best possible future.'
A parent also commented ‘My son was bullied in primary school. I knew Wapping High School was the right school for him. His good results wouldn't have been possible in any other school. The level of support and the school community is second to none.’
All Year 11 students leaving the school this year are going onto further educational and vocational training. We wish all students the very best of luck for their future. We look forward to receiving 2018 results and hope that they are just as fantastic as this year if not better!
