Record average for Guru Nanak pupils
GURU Nanak Academy is celebrating 'record' A-level grades, as scores of students collect their results.
Eighty per cent of students at the school, in Springfield Road, Hayes, got A-C passes, with an overall pass rate of 94 per cent.
The average point score per student was 935, a figure which Rajinder Sandhu, headteacher at the school, says are the highest in the school's history.
"It is all down to the quality of the teaching in the classroom," he said.
"We are very fortunate to have high quality staff, a supportive governing body and parents who trust in us.
"We have set the bar very high, and now the challenge is to keep up the good work and continue to improve into next year."
Guru Nanak opted out of local authority control and became an academy in September 2010, specialising in business studies.
Regardless of whether A-level results day brings joy or anxiety, students can find out what their options are to secure that university place by logging on to our website.
We will be hosting an interactive web chat with a UCAS advisor at noon and 6pm, and of course we will have all the A-level news and pictures from across the borough.
