GCSE results: Eastbury

Eastbury School in Barking is the most improved school in the borough, according to early reports.

The amount of students achieving five or more A*-C with English and maths was 57 per cent.

Headteacher David Dickson told the Post he believed the school had made the biggest leap.

He said: “I have always been extremely proud of all the students at Eastbury and these monumental results are a result of their hard work.

“I am absolutely delighted with the results and working together with the parents is what has made them achievable.”
