The “best results of the borough” in today’s A-levels results in London’s East End has been made at Bishop Challoner secondary with one-in-four Year-13 pupils getting A*s and As.
An incredible 80 per cent overall received A*-to-C grades for their exams.
The school achieved 100 per cent passes at A*-to-E grades, which looks like it could top the schools’ league table in Tower Hamlets.
“We ‘re confident that we’ve achieved the best results in the borough,” joint-Head of Sixth Form Andrew Warburton said. “This is testament to quality of teaching, learning and support at Bishop Challoner.”
The significant proportion of top-grade As and A*s bucks the national trend which is showing a decline.
