Education Links

Education Links has achieved its highest results to date, with 38 per cent of grades at A*-C or above.

This saw the small Stratford-based alternative provision school, which teaches children who have been excluded from mainstream education and condenses courses into a single year,

double last year’s achievements.

The school also saw five pupils achieve A*-C grades in media and six in drama.

Principal Sandy Davies said: “This year has been a challenge with the change in grading systems for English and maths, but we have seen improvements in all subject areas. I am delighted for the students, they have worked so hard.”

Due to the nature of the school, some pupils join Education Links later in the academic year.

Rather than that be something that deters strong results, staff and pupils collaborate to ensure that any obstacles can be overcome.
