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.
Two Bishop Challoner sixthformers now move on to Cambridge, one to Oxford and another to the London School of Economics.
One girl, Mila Mundrova, who begins a Bachelors degree course in Psychology in October at St John College, Cambridge, reveals: “I always wanted to push myself as much as I can. The school gave me a lot of support. The Sixth Form has been helping me with every single part of the application process.”
Many more start at Russell Group universities up and down the country later this year.
The 2015 BTEC students have also had a good result, with places secured at Queen Mary in Mile End as well as Birmingham and Liverpool universities.
The school also managed its highest-ever number of nursing placements for the BTEC Health and Social Care programme.
