Staff and students at Sir George Monoux College in Walthamstow celebrated a great year of exam results on 17th August 2017. The College’s A Level pass rate has increased to a three year high. There were also huge improvements in BTEC pass rates, which was great news for the college as BTECs are such an important route into university.
I'm incredibly proud of our students who have performed exceptionally well at the end of two years of hard work. For many, this is a triumph through the uncertainty of the new reformed A-Levels. To see an improved pass rate is fabulous. We teach students from exceptionally diverse backgrounds and students who when they joined were unsure that they could one day go to university. We are once again making this possible. Today is a great day for young people in East London who live through so much adversity. Their determination and ambition is what will keep our economy alive in future years!
