Linguists at Bower Park Academy celebrated a fantastic set of GCSE results, with almost all pupils passing French, Portugese and Russian.

Students achieved brilliant marks across the board, with the academy registering an 8 per cent increase in 5A* to C grades.

The school, in Havering Road, Romford, saw its marks increase in all of its core subjects, with a 10pc rise in science, 11pc hike in English and a whopping 13pc increase in maths.

Principal Stuart Mclaughlin said: “I am delighted by the improvements in our GCSE results especially in the core academic subjects.

“These improvements are the result of hard work and dedication from students, staff, parents and carers.

“Bower Park looks forward to building on these improvements in the forthcoming academic year.”

In languages all pupils sitting Portugese and Russian got a C or higher, with 94pc of French grades being at least a pass.

Ella Wotton achieved two A*s, three As, and 7s in English literature and English language.

Abby Champness secured the new highest grade 9 in both English language and English literature.
