A’ Level results released last week show almost a quarter of all students at Ursuline High School and Wimbledon College achieved A*-A grades and nearly all achieved A*-E grades.
Merton Council cabinet member for education Councillor Peter Walker said: “These results are great news and testament to the hard work that students and their teachers have put in over the past year. We now have around 70% of the schools in Merton achieving a good or outstanding rating by OFSTED and these results build on the progress we are making in boosting school standards in the borough.
“I am looking forward to next year when our new 6th forms at Rutlish, Ricards, Bishopsford and Raynes Park will publish their first ever A’ Level results.
“I hope that, together, all the 6th forms will build on the success we are achieving in our schools and help even more local young people to realise their ambitions.”
