Three-quarters of pupils at Rotherhithe’s Bacon’s College have achieved at least a Grade 4 in English and Maths, as the school hails a “strong set” of results.
The school on Timber Pond Road said the results achieved this year will enable “the vast majority” of pupils to take their next step in education, employment or training.
Almost three-quarters of all grades were at a ‘pass’, with nearly half being at a Grade 5 or above, the equivalent of a “strong pass.”
“Whilst there has been a great deal of uncertainty over the last few weeks, the students should be given huge credit for the way they have worked and persevered through a huge range of personal and practical challenges – these results are a fair and accurate reflection of their abilities and talents,” the school said.
“They have been ably supported by dedicated and hard-working teachers and support staff who have themselves had to adapt with skill and speed to the constant changes imposed on them, with further changes occurring only within the last twenty-four hours.”
The school highlighted a number of ‘exceptional’ performances from Year 11 pupils, including:
- Vivian C who achieved seven Grade 9s and three Grade 8s
- Jibola A scored seven Grade 9s and two Grade 8s
- Tiger C’s results saw him score six Grade 8s and four Grade 7s
- Chanel F has received six Grade 9s and four Grade 8s
- And Ellie H who has received two Grade 9s and six Grade 7s
