The principal at Harold Hill’s Drapers’ Academy is proud of all of the pupils’ achievements with their GCSE results whether they achieved top grades or simply worked harder to push a mock grade from a 3 to a 4.

Darren Luckhurst, principal at Drapers’ Academy in Settle Road told the Recorder: “As much as I am pleased with our improvements, headlines should not be about the whole school today, it’s about the individual pupils, demonstrating that putting in the effort gets you the grades you are capable of.

“Whether that be a success with a double 9 in science or an improvement from a mock grade of 3 to a 4 in maths, these are all achievements worth celebrating.”

Some notable achievements include Mitchell Roach who achieved a 9 in double science and geography and 8s in maths and RE.

Alexander Friend was also delighted with his results as he received a 9 in both maths and double science, A* in graphics and As in resistant materials and statistics.

“I am delighted with the achievements of our pupils and of our departments too,” said Mr Luckhurst.

“I am impressed with our 22 per cent improvement in geography 14pc in science.

“These are subjects Ofsted were critical of in November 2017 and wanted us to improve in.”

As the parent of a 16-year-old, Mr Luckhurst experienced for the first time what it felt like to be a parent waiting for their daughter’s results.

“I’d like to thank all of the teachers and staff at Drapers’ Academy as well as the support given by parents to their children,” he said.

“I cannot emphasis enough how important the parent/guardian’s role is with how successful our pupils do in their exams and I thank you all for your support.”

Daisy Robins was pleased with her results which included a 9 in double science, maths and English literature and an A* in graphics.

Nevena Brkic achieved an impressive 8 in double science and geography, 7s in art and English literature and Bs in business and statistics.
