GCSE results in Bexley saw an impressive 74 per cent of young people scoring five A* to C grades.

Cllr John Fuller, said: “We have seen some small dips and that seems to be the picture across the country because of changes to the exam process. We have still maintained the usual standard of good grades. I hope that many of our young people will now go on to continue their education or training in Bexley.”

Highlights include Beths Grammar School, where 99 per cent of students achieved five A* to C grades, including English and Maths.

Beths highest achiever, Sami Osborn, achieved 11 A* grades at GCSE and three A grades at AS Level.

He said: “I am looking forward to studying Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and, hopefully Further Maths as well.”

Headteacher James Skinner said: “I am once again extremely pleased with this year’s results and was delighted that our students were realising their potential in achieving their A* and A grades.”
