After weeks of waiting, pupils were able to collect their GCSE results today from Drapers Academy.

The Academy announced that GCSE results have improved for the second year by 5 per cent to 57pc A*-C grades, including English and Maths.

Five students were given special mention by the Academy for their achievements; Mayokun Afolabi, Denisa Juknaite, Aaron Knox, Tom Hudson and Karolina Joksaite, all 16, were praised by their school for the amount of As and A*s they picked up.

The school has seen its results improve by 10pc since 2014, and Principal Darren Luckhurst paid tribute to the hard work of students and teachers.

He said: “We will continue this commitment but now is the time to recognise and celebrate the success of the young people who collected their deserved results this morning.”

“I continue to be impressed by the improvements we are making with our results. We are on an upwards trajectory and will not settle for less.

“The education playing field is continually changing and this year, schools will be measured in a different way than ever before.

“We are immensely pleased that our English and maths results have increased significantly again this year.

“I wish to thank all the teachers and staff at Drapers’ Academy as well as the support given by parents to their children. We cannot do this alone and the success of our young people relies on us working together.

“School resumes for all pupils on Monday 5th September and we look forward to another positive year ahead.”
