Today, students at Langdon Park School in Poplar, London, were once again celebrating impressive A-Level results.
Building on the success of previous years, this year’s results saw a remarkable 20 per cent of entries achieving A* or A grades, and 48 per cent achieving A*-B grades. Nearly all students achieved grades C and above and no student achieved any grade less than a D.
Among this year’s top performers was student Tajwar Aziz, who achieved A*AA.
Richard Fitzgerald, headteacher at the school, commented: “I want to extend my heartfelt congratulations to an exceptional group of students, whose hard work and commitment throughout the year has certainly paid off. Massive thanks and congratulations are also due to the parents and staff who have guided and supported our students and who will, no doubt, be enjoying the celebrations taking place all over Poplar. We are reminded on a daily basis how difficult it is to make your way in the current economic climate, but our students will be able to enter higher education and then employment, secure in the knowledge that they are building on very firm foundations. We wish them all the best and look forward to hearing of their continuing success.”
In the past year, the school has celebrated a number of successes including having the highest value added score for English Literature A-Level in the country; finalising plans for a new building to accommodate the growth in its increasingly popular Sixth Form; successfully obtaining four of the only 60 places available nationwide at a Mathematics summer school at Oxford University; and implementing enrichment programmes with local business for students including one with Clifford Chance Law Firm, Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership (THEBP), and Barclays Bank to name but a few.
Undoubtedly, today’s A-Level results have further cemented the school’s place as one of the best schools in the area.
Langdon Park School will be hosting an Open Evening on 19th October where the headteacher and his team will be on hand to personally show prospective parents and students all the great things that Langdon Park has to offer. For more information visit http://www.langdonparkschool.co.uk/
