The overall A level pass rate for SNS students is 99%. We fully expect to be again rated “outstanding” for the progress our sixth form students make.

These results have been achieved in the changing national circumstances of new syllabi, examinations and examination structure. Congratulations to all our students, all our staff and thank you to all their supporters!

Our sixth form is heavily oversubscribed in many subjects for the new academic year in September.

Headteacher Annie Gammon said: “We are delighted to see these brilliant achievements from all our sixth form students in A level, AS level and vocational courses. They, and their teachers, have worked hard and deserve this success.

“We have more and more students wanting to join our sixth form, with applicants from across Hackney and other London boroughs. I’m proud that all our students have got such great results. All our intake make excellent progress whatever their starting point: we make a point of providing tailored support for all our students. We feel we have managed the transition to the changed A levels very effectively for our students.”

Crispin Truman, Chair of Governors, added that “It’s great to see these continued excellent results from Stoke Newington students. Governors, parents, teachers and of course the students themselves can be proud that our community Sixth Form is achieving at the very highest levels of secondary schools nationally. “
