Bishop Challoner has battled to maintain standards in the face of national concern over the result of curriculum changes at A-Level.

Many of its school-leavers are starting the next stage of their journey at some of the world’s top academic institutions.

Calum McCormick leaves Bishop Challoner with two A* and two A grades to read Ancient History at Exeter University.

“All the help I got at school has been really incredible,” she said.

Chinenye Anene got three As at ‘Advance’ level and is going on to read psychology at Birmingham University. Andrius Falkauskas has won a scholarship to Kent University.

BTEC students in particular have had a good year, in which the Sixth Form was awarded the ‘World Class Schools’ quality mark which accredits schools that ‘move beyond outstanding’. Bishop Challoner in the Commercial Road is one of few institutions in London to achieve this mark.

The Sixth Form, part of Bishop Challoner Catholic Federation of Schools, is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
