Wembley High scores the 25th most improved GCSE results in the UK

Deputy head Peter Gillett says he is delighted with the results

A school is celebrating its exam success after being ranked the 25th most improved secondary in their GCSE attainment in the past four years.

Three quarters of Year 11 students at Wembley High Technology College, in East Lane, achieved the ‘gold standard’ of five A* to C grades in their exams last year – up from 45 per cent in 2007.

Peter Gillett, deputy head at the school, said teachers were ‘delighted’ with the results.

He said: “We are over the moon with these results.

“They are down to the exceptional hard work of students and staff who have made this possible, and the outstanding support of our parents.

“We have a large number of Oxbridge applications this year, and that is down to the students doing well at GCSE and more and more students doing A Level courses.”
