Steve Belk, Acting Chief Executive of The Learning Trust, said: “Hackney’s schools continue to improve ahead of many other London boroughs. At post-16, we are the most improved borough in the country for the average point score per student.
“We will continue to work closely with secondary schools to bring even further improvements in teaching and learning.
“We’d like to thank teachers and students for working so hard throughout the year and we look forward to an even better set of results next year.”
