Pupils at Hall Mead School were delighted this morning to discover that they had exceeded the national targets set by the government.

A total of 68 per cent of students are celebrating after achieving A* to C in English and maths today.

As the pupils nervously opened their brown envelopes this morning at the school, in Marlborough Gardens, Upminster, they were delighted to discover that they had smashed the national targets.

Simon London, headteacher at the school, said: “Hall Mead is celebrating the exceptional progress made by its GCSE students this year.

“In the year that the Department for Education has put progress as its key measure for GCSE performance, our Year 11 students exceeded their GCSE targets by an average of almost half a grade across the board.”
