2017 Exam Success!

2017 Exam Success

LONDON EAST ALTERNATIVE PROVISION (Previously known as Tower Hamlets PRU) has achieved its best ever GCSE results.

Despite the biggest overhaul of the examination system in England, since GCSEs were introduced nearly 30 years ago, we are celebrating the schools best ever results, which are above the National and London average for AP schools, based on the most recent Department for Education figures1 in English, Maths and a wide range of other subjects

Many of our pupils have attended the school for less than a year, some for just a few months. Despite this, staff and pupils are proud of our 2017 achievements.

We are also very proud of the achievement of our ‘disadvantaged’ pupils who have achieved in line or better than that achieved by non-disadvantaged groups, which goes against the trend in most schools.

Congratulations must go to staff and pupils who, by working together, achieved these excellent results.

Pupils who find themselves at London East AP in the coming years can have confidence that they will be able to achieve their potential in a wide range of academic and vocational subjects.
