Sutton GCSE students celebrate their success

Pupils from schools across the London Borough of Sutton have again achieved some of the best results in the country with their GCSE results just announced.

This year the proportion of Sutton students scoring 5 or more A* to C grades including English and Maths is 76.9%, well above last year's national average of 53.4%.

Across the borough, 83.5% of pupils have achieved 5 or more GCSEs, slightly down on last year’s figure of 84.3%.

Wendy Mathys, Liberal Democrat Chair of the Children, Families and Education Committee, led the praise:  “I would like to congratulate all the students on their excellent results which, once again, are among the best in the country. 

“GCSE results day is a big moment in our young people’s lives as they begin to prepare for the future and I hope they will build on their GCSE success whether it’s through training, an apprenticeship or further academic studies. I wish them all the best for what they do next.” 

Wendy also paid tribute to the hard work of the teachers, support staff, leaders and governors in the borough’s schools.

The figures are provisional and may be subject to change.
