East Point tops the table again
Published on 24/08/17
This year's GCSE results have seen another record year for East Point Academy, with students again the highest achieving in Lowestoft.
The academy's results have bucked the national trend that saw a slight decrease in results, with an overall 65% of students achieving Grade 4 or better in English and maths.
This year's exams see the start of a move to a new numerical grading system between 9 and 1, replacing the old A-G regime, and the removal of coursework assessment. English and maths have already changed, with remaining subjects to follow over the next two years.
Students also scooped top marks across the school, with a quarter of grades at A*/A or the new numerical equivalents.
Principal Richard Dolding said: "These results confirm our students as being the very best in Lowestoft, building on last year's fantastic results. Across all subjects, a quarter of students achieved the top grades of A*/A or equivalents.
"The hard work and dedication of the students and staff, combined with the support of the local community has ensured that we improved upon last year's fantastic results."
