Wanstead High School going from strength to strength.

The DfE performance tables for GCSE and A level results 2016 are now published.

This confirms the very positive news we had in the summer, but also allows us to see how we compare with other schools.

Every year the DfE puts schools into groups of 55 “similar” schools, based on prior attainment. Last year we were 23rd out of 55 in terms of GCSE performance. This year we are 4th out of 55 similar schools. Our Progress 8 score of 0.50 puts us around the top 5% of schools nationally.

At A level our value added score of +0.10 puts us in the  top 12% nationally, and the second highest state school in Redbridge. We can be confident that our Sixth Form is best placed to meet our students’ needs. More information is available here:


The whole school community should feel rightly proud of these achievements.
