IT SAYS something about this phenomenal year for Thurrock schools that William Edwards can improve their 5 GCSE A* to C including English and Maths by a very impressive 10 per cent and it could easily be overlooked. Not at YourThurrock they won’t!
William Edwards have been the bedrock of educational excellence for decades in the borough. What is happening now is that they are now breathing down the neck of the Grays Convent as they are just 1% behind their neighbours.
The students at the school were ecstatic as they mingled in the assembly hall to get the good news.
YourThurrock’s Mike Jones spoke to a number of students including Ellie Monk and Deputy Headteacher Ralph Henderson to bottle the euphoria at the school.
