Two Harrow Schools in London's top ten for A Level performance
Park High School in Stanmore and Canons High School in Edgware have both featured among the top ten performing schools in London, in figures released by the Department for Education.
"Level 3 Value Added" tables published on 12th February show that, of the 2000-plus schools and colleges in England who enter students for A Levels and whose results have been published, Park High is placed 8th nationally and Canons High, 25th. Both schools are in London's top 10.
Lynn Rowlands, Headteacher of Canons High School, said: "The outstanding progress made by our Sixth Form students is a source of great pride for us and for the local community. We are delighted that the vast majority have achieved a place at the university of their choice. We thank our students and our superb staff for all their hard work".
Emlyn Lumley, Headteacher of Park High School, agreed, saying: "The hard work and dedication of staff and students deserve this recognition. We are thrilled that our schools and colleges have done so well. All of Harrow should be proud of the progress made in our sixth forms."
Both Canons High and Park High also made the London top 10 for AS Level progress.
Bob Blackman, MP for Harrow East was delighted that students who live in his constituency are spoilt for choice when it comes to A Level studies, with two of the capital's top ten schools in adjacent wards. “These results are fantastic news for the schools, their pupils, and for Harrow. I am very proud to have two such distinguished schools in my constituency and would like to publicly congratulate each of them. This Government has made a commitment to improving standards in Education and these two academy status schools are greatly contributing to that”.
