PUPILS AT the London Enterprise Academy are ecstatic after surpassing expectations to achieve excellent results. The principal Ashid Ali described the results as “fantastic”.
The school reached the national average for pupil progress and attainment in eight subjects and exceeded the national average in EBACC entry and EBACC results. There were some magnificent individual results which included 25 Grade 9s (the highest possible grade) and over 60 Grade 8s (which is equivalent to the old A* grade).
Ashid Ali added, “This is evidence that the hard work of pupils and staff have delivered results that we can all be proud of. Some of the high performers achieved results that pupils in top grammar schools in the country would be proud of.”
The London Enterprise Academy has supported high performers to achieve exceptional results which will give them sixth form places at some of the top schools in London, including the London Academy of Excellence, Newham Collegiate, Mulberry Girls’, Brampton Manor and Sir John Cass.
Also tailored support has been offered to all the other pupils, including new arrivals to the UK, to help them achieve their personal best and progress to post-16 education.
Ashid Ali said, “I am so pleased with the performance of this year group. They were the pioneers of our school. Many of these students will go on to become doctors, lawyers, accountants, investment bankers and entrepreneurs. The preparation and hard work of our pupils and the guidance from our staff have demonstrated that our methods of teaching and learning deliver high standards. I am confident that we will improve on these results next year. I wish all our pupils the best of luck in post-16 education.”
The London Enterprise Academy opened in 2014 as a new Free School in Whitechapel.
