Third Consecutive Year of Significant GCSE Improvement at The Hurlingham Academy

Third Consecutive Year of Significant GCSE Improvement at The Hurlingham Academy
Students and staff at The Hurlingham Academy are today celebrating their GCSE results, which have shown a third consecutive year of significant improvement. 

72% of students achieved five or more A* to C grades including 4 or above in both English and maths – up from 63% in 2016 and the highest ever. 

In August 2014, the predecessor school saw 42% of students gaining five or more A* to C grades including English and maths. Since joining multi-academy trust United Learning in January 2015, the school has gone from strength to strength, and seen a 30 percentage point increase overall in the number of students meeting this headline measure. 

There were notable individual successes, including: 

  • Stephanie Corbin, who achieved grade 9s in English Language and maths, two A*s and three As;
  • Benjamin Ntumba, who achieved grade 9s in English literature and maths, four A*s and three As;
  • Huda Abdalla, who achieved grade 9s in English Literature and maths, three A*s and four As;
  • Sunday Eguaroje, who achieved a grade 9 in maths and eight As;
  • Malak Karim, who achieved a grade 8 in maths, four A*s and five As;
  • Shifana Kunnathedath, who achieved a grade 8 in maths and eight As; 
  • Kenneth Barba, who achieve a grade 8 in maths, three A*s and five As. 

Leon Wilson, Principal of The Hurlingham Academy, said: 

“We are absolutely delighted with these results today which demonstrate a significant, three-year upward trend for the academy. Everyone at the academy – students and staff alike – has worked tirelessly to drive up standards and to improve the outcomes our students achieve. These results are therefore testament to their efforts and are ones that students can take genuine pride in. 

“I would like to thank staff for maintaining high aspirations for what our students can achieve and to students for working hard to meet them. I know that this year’s continued GCSE success will help to spur on our younger cohorts to achieve these and better results in the future.”
