Pupils from across Harrow celebrate GCSE results
Pupils across the borough have been celebrating getting their GCSE results.
Thousands of Year 11 pupils from across Harrow have been logging on to find out whether they have got the grades to make it into sixth form or college.
One school which had a particularly good day was Hatch End High School, in Headstone Lane, which had more than 60 per cent of its pupils getting five A* to C grades including English and maths.
Headteacher Sue Maguire said: “We are absolutely delighted that once again we have increased our results with almost two thirds of our students gaining their five A* to Cs.
“Our staff really do go the extra mile with supporting all our young people with high quality and outstanding teaching.
“All the kids have worked so hard and it’s great to see how happy they are when they open their results.
“I would like to thank all staff, students and parents for their support in making this such a fantastic day.”
Beniamin Motac, 15, got the grades he needed to get into sixth form to study maths, physics, economics and product design.
He said: “I’m really proud of what I got and I’m so happy I got the grades I needed to get into sixth form.
“I was so nervous this morning before I got my results but now I am really relieved."
Laura Buckingham, 16, who received six A* grades, said: “I’m so so pleased with my results. The nerves were really getting to me this morning but after looking at my results I was so happy but also glad its over.
“I’m going to go onto sixth form and study history, music, French and maths and I’m really forward to it.”
Last year the school was in the top 25 per cent of all schools nationally for progress made by pupils.
