This year's 'A' Level results in Enfield schools show that the borough's young people are maintaining a level of high achievement with a pass rate of 98.2% outperforming the national average (98.1%)
But that is not the whole story. Twelve out of 17 schools have improved on their performance last year with five getting 100% pass rates. These are Broomfield, Nightingale Academy and Southgate with Edmonton County and Enfield County achieving 100% for the second consecutive year.
In the measure for A* - C grade passes, 76% of students reached these high standards, comparing favourably with 2015 results (75%). Distinctions in equivalent BTEC examinations indicate that Enfield schools are doing well.
This year large numbers of students undertook stand-alone AS qualifications for the first time and whilst no comparable benchmark exists for these examinations The Latymer School (98.6%), Aylward Academy (98.3%), Lea Valley High School (97.6%), Edmonton County School (93.9%) and Oasis Academy Enfield (93.9%) achieved excellent pass rates for these learners.
Cllr Ayfer Orhan, Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Education, Children's Services & Protection, said, "Enfield's students have achieved higher grades in their chosen subjects and this reflects their hard work and ambition to succeed.
"Teachers work extremely hard to ensure that all students fulfil their potential for A Levels and other post 16 examinations all of which will help young people in the next stage of their education. Congratulations to all of them."
Students may also have followed other courses of study and these will be published in the Achievement and Attainment Tables in late January 2017.
