Bexley teenagers are celebrating yet another record-breaking year for GCSE results.
At Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School, the percentage of pupils achieving an A star or A grade, rose from 46 percent last year to 53.8 percent this year.
Meanwhile, at Blackfen School for Girls, 100 percent of pupils gained at least five A star to G passes and there is an eight percent increase in those receiving five or more A star to C grades, including English and Mathematics.
Lordi Tickell, 16, from Blackfen School for Girls, received two A stars, five As and five Bs.
She said: “I’m really happy, I worked really hard.
“I’ll be going to Townley Grammar School in September to do my A-levels.
“I want to go to university and study medicine.
“I didn’t find any of the exams too difficult but I don’t think the government should make them harder.”
Nigel Walker, head teacher at Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School said: “We are absolutely delighted with the improvement made this year with our GCSE results especially the significant improvement in the number of students achieving an A star or A grade.
“I congratulate all the students, staff and parents who have worked so hard to achieve these fantastic results.”
