Teachers at St Saviour’s and St Olave’s on the New Kent Road have thanked students’ families for helping produce this year’s crop of “simply stunning” results, with everyone who wanted to go to university getting in.
Outstanding students at the girls school include Saschay Ducran-Grant and Keziah Whittlesea, who both achieved A*A*A*, Laura Colin and Charlotte Martin, who achieved A*A*A and Deborah Esan, who achieved A*AA. Deborah will be studying Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics at Cambridge University.
Headteacher Catherine May said: “I am absolutely delighted with the grades our Year 13 students have achieved this year. Their grades are quite simply stunning, and their university and apprenticeship places are exactly what they deserve. Students and their teachers have managed the most challenging of circumstances throughout the last 18 months and these fantastic outcomes are testament to their determination, their resilience and consistent hard work.
“I am proud of all that these girls have achieved and am confident they have very bright futures ahead of them. I want to thank them and their families for working with us throughout these extraordinary times to achieve these impressive outcomes and destinations. It’s been a privilege to have been a part of their journey. I look forward to hearing about all they will undoubtedly continue to achieve.”
Deputy headteacher Michelle Ferguson who led students and staff through the process of teacher assessed grades, said: “Our students are ambitious, talented and tenacious. They have worked incredibly hard and deserve the excellent grades they have achieved. I am confident that they will continue to excel and fulfil their potential as they move on to the next stage of their lives. I am so proud of them and grateful to our staff and parents for working with us to support our wonderful students.”
Head of sixth form Hannah Kennedy added: “We are so proud to be able to celebrate the exceptional achievements of our Year 13 students today. This year has required them to have more independence, determination and resilience than ever before and we have felt continually humbled by their commitment to their learning at every stage.”
