The A Team: AS and GCSE Results Day success

Congratulations to our year 12 students who received the academy’s first set of AS results this summer, and to our Class of 2015 who achieved another fine set of GCSE results.

A pleasing first set of AS results for our Sixth Form this year showing they are on track for some excellent final grades in their A levels next year. A third of all students achieved three or more (in most cases four) A*-B grades with an overall pass rate of 94%.

On GCSE Results Day many of our students were celebrating a string of straight A grades with 42% of students achieving at least three A*/A grades. 73% of students achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and maths; 20% above the national average.



I am delighted to invite you to consider The City Academy, Hackney as your preferred choice of secondary school for your child.

In 2014, our students made more academic progress than in any other school in London. In fact, the attainment of our students in their GCSEs demonstrated the best progress of any co-educational secondary school in the country as a whole. In addition, we have received two ‘Outstanding’ grades from Ofsted; judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in every category twice.

When we were established in 2009 our aim was to build a ‘world class’ academy for our students based on the highest expectations.
