Students and staff at The Hurlingham Academy are celebrating another year of spectacular GCSE success with 84% of students achieving five or more 9-4/A*-C grades including English and maths under this year's new GCSE grading structure. 

This is double the number who achieved the equivalent measure in 2014, just before the school joined United Learning and became an academy.

Wider improvements have also been achieved across the board at The Hurlingham Academy, including on the government's combined English and maths measure. This year, 86% of students achieved at least a grade 4 in  both subjects, and 64% achieved at least a 5.

In addition, a number of students achieved multiple grade 9s - the new highest level possible. These included:

  • Elissavet Germanidou, who achieved six 9s, two A*s, an 8 and a 6;
  • Jade Long, who achieved six 9s, an 8 and a 7;
  • Allysa Holdsworth, who achieved four 9s, two 8s, two 7s and an A;
  • Salvatore Peterson, who achieved three 9s, three 8s, two 7s and an A.

Leon Wilson, Principal of The Hurlingham Academy, said:

All our students can take great pride in their achievements today which are yet another indicator of how far we have come as a school. Our year on year success is testament to everyone's efforts and hard work - students, staff, parents and governors.

We have always known that this school had significant potential and it is such a pleasure to see this come to fruition.  It is truly a school that London can be proud of.  I know these results will provide further motivation for all our younger year groups, confident in the knowledge that they have the potential to achieve and indeed exceed today's successes in the future."

Dame Sally Coates, Director of Secondary Academies at United Learning said:

I am very pleased for everyone at The Hurlingham Academy, who are celebrating yet another excellent set of results.  Leon Wilson and his team deserve significant praise for the transformation they have achieved since the school joined United Learning in 2015.  These outstanding results are testament to the ethos and vision that are displayed by everyone across the school and to Leon's infectious enthusiasm and belief in what his students can achieve.
