Pupils have received “a fantastic set of GCSE results” at Bishop Challoner schools despite a challenging and unprecedented year.
The school theatre at the adjoining boys’ and girls’ campuses in Stepney’s Commercial Road was full of jubilant Year 11s who returned for their results.
The girls’ school got 67pc of all GCSE grades at 5 or above, with 35pc at 7 or higher, putting it above national average for another consecutive year. English had 40pc graded 7 to 9 and 82pc at 5 to 9. Maths was 32pc at grades 7 to 9 and 67pc in grades five to 9.
Girls' headteacher Chantelle Easmon-Johnson said: “Results this year are outstanding despite the incredible adversity our girls have faced in recent months. They’ testify to the girls' dedicated and mature work ethic.”
Just over half of all boys’ passes were grade 5 or above, while one in five managed grade 7 or higher.
