The headteacher of Rokeby School has said she is proud of the “resilience and determination” shown by pupils receiving their GCSE results.
Charlotte Robinson, who is in charge of the Barking Road, Canning Town school, said: “I am so proud of our boys’ achievements.
“This year they have been faced with unprecedented challenges and have demonstrated resilience and determination throughout. Thank you to all the staff and parents who have given them the support they need to achieve success.”
Pupils who collected their results said they were happy with the outcome, with grades based on teacher predictions after this summer’s exams were cancelled.
Jaiden Wisdom, who joined the school in Year 10, said he was expected to get 3s and 4s but picked up much higher grades in many of his subjects.
