He commented saying:

“I am thrilled about my GCSE results as it is a reminder of how important it is to work hard for what we want in life. During the exam period, I made the best use of my time by revising at home using numerous revision methods taught by my teachers which were very helpful in helping me to form good practises.

“The environment at Westminster City School is a productive atmosphere where students learn well and are provided with the right resources to excel and achieve their full potential. For this reason, I am very much looking forward to completing my seven-year journey by joining Westminster City School’s Sixth Form.”

Commenting on this year’s GCSE results, Headteacher, Mr Peter Broughton said:

“I am exceptionally pleased with this year’s results which represent a significant improvement on 2019 outcomes which was the last time examinations were completed in the normal way. These results also represent improvement on the performance of 2020 and are therefore one of the highest in the school’s history.

“We look forward to welcoming many of our top performers back into our extremely popular Sixth Form and wish those who are moving on to fresh challenges all the very best. Both students and staff have gone ‘above and beyond’ in terms of the effort and resilience they have showed. On top of a positive OFSTED inspection in March this year, these outcomes ensure that the school is well set for an exciting future as we continue to inspire excellence in the heart of London.”

Jamts achieved three Grade 8s, five Grade 7s and two Grade 6s and will be studying A-level Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics at Westminster City School’s Sixth Form. Commenting on his experience at Westminster City School, Jamts said:

“The teachers here are very approachable, they want students to do well and most importantly, they show that they care about the entire school community. This is reflected in the grades that we have achieved and are some of the many reasons as to why I decided to join Westminster City School’s Sixth Form.”

Deputy Headteacher, Ms Jen Lockyer, said:

“Most of our Year 11 students have been at Westminster City School since Year 7 and it has been wonderful to see them develop, grow and learn over the last five years. I am so proud of the hard work and resilience they have demonstrated, particularly over the last couple of years, and I look forward to seeing many complete their seven-year journey with us, by joining our Sixth Form this autumn.”
