Eighty per cent of pupils at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Camberwell have been awarded a standard pass in both English and Maths this year.

And, more than half (52 per cent) of pupils gained a strong pass in both English and Maths in this year’s provisional results.

Last year the schools’ GCSE results mean it was ranked 30th in the entire country for Progress 8 – the government’s main progress measure, a feat the Camberwell school’s head teacher hopes to replicate.

  • 52% of pupils achieved a strong pass in both English and Maths
  • 80% of pupils achieved a standard pass in both English and Maths

Head teacher Mr Cefai said: “The last few years have seen lots of changes in the educational landscape, with GCSEs moving from A*-G to 9-1.

“These latest results confirm that all the hard work we have put in as a school continues to bear fruit, with pupils achieving another set of fantastic results.

“Congratulations to all our staff and pupils.

“I am sure that when national Progress 8 results are confirmed we will once again rank among the top schools in the country.”

Among the top performers were: Holly Agbukor (six 9s, four 8s), Rachel Daramola (five 9s, five 8s), Vanessa Gagno (five 9s, four 8s, one 7, Emelia Bature (four 9s, five 8s, one 7), Amabel Cofie (three 9s, five 8s, two 7s) and Blessing Okuchukwu (three 9s, seven 8s).
