Newham’s excluded pupils shine at GCSE
Young people in Newham excluded from mainstream education also had much to celebrate when GCSE results were published.
Education Links, an off-shoot of Newham-based charity Community Links, works with around 120 young people each year to improve the prospects of students who have been unable to attend mainstream schools.
This year, 92 per cent of pupils achieved A to G grades in their GCSE exams.
Jasem Shah in particular had much to be proud of - not only did he gain five GCSEs but he also completed his Maths and English Functional Skills exams.
Ms Davies said: “Our students have to work especially hard due to the setbacks they have experienced in mainstream schooling.

“Even though our students were not in mainstream education they have been able to sit GCSE exams, ensuring the best possible scaffolding for their future endeavours.
“We are so very proud, not only of the results of this year’s cohort, but of the individual achievements each student has made with us and we wish them all the best of luck.”
