Examination success was celebrated at the City of London Academy Southwark today following another year of excellent GCSE examinations results.

76% of students achieved a minimum of 5 A*-C passes, including English and Mathematics.

Excluding Mathematics and English, the students achieved 86% 5 A*-C.

Richard Bannister, Executive Principal at the City of London Academy Southwark, said:

“We are delighted our students have achieved our joint best GCSE exam results, despite the government this year increasing the academic rigour.

“These excellent results are testament to the dedication and commitment put in by our students and the hard work and inspiration provided by our teaching and support staff teams.

“It is wonderful to see so many of our students continuing to choose their A level studies here at our academy, as they seek to attain their goals of progressing on to prestigious universities. We wish them all the very best in the future.”

Andrew McMurtrie, Chair of the City of London Academies Trust said:

“We are very proud of our students and what they have achieved. We wish them all well with their next steps and look forward to welcoming many of them back into the sixth form.”

The City Corporation, which is already ranked as the top multi-academy sponsor in the country for pupil progress by the Department for Education, sponsors or co-sponsors two primary and three secondary academies across Hackney, Islington and Southwark. All are judged as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
