St Thomas More Catholic School in Haringey is celebrating its GCSE exam success this year.

The school sits at the top of the borough’s GCSE league table after achieving a 5 A*-C percentage including Mathematics and English of 76%. This is improved from 33% last year.

The Chairman of Governors at St Thomas More School, Cllr Pat Egan said: “There is no doubt that Martin Tissot our Headteacher and his new team have put in place what parents want: structure, discipline, values and a focus on academic achievement. The GCSE results show we have done the double and have the accolade of being the fastest improving School in London over the past two years.”

Headteacher Martin Tissot thanked staff, students and parents singling out in particular the parents who supported their sons and daughters through the difficult time of examinations. He said: ‘We depend upon those parents and primary carers to ensure that our students attend extra classes, complete work at home and complete structured revision programmes. This makes a difference as the results show!’
