2013 HFS students achieve another set of excellent exam results

Highbury Fields School has produced another impressive set of A Level and GCSE examination results. Yet again there has been a superb 100% pass rate at A Level while the GCSE results saw 68% of students achieving 5 grades at A* to C including English and Maths.

The school is particularly proud that 85% of students gained grade A*-C in GCSE English of which 42 students achieved A* or A.

In the top 10%

I am delighted to report that Highbury Fields School in now ranked in the top 10% of schools in the country! Each year the Department of Education report on and compare the attainment and progress of students in all secondary schools in the country. We already knew that our students had attained very highly in the 2012 GCSE examinations. We now know that our students' progress between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 was amongst the best in England. Well done to all students and staff and to our supportive school community.
