Sacred Heart School in Camberwell has reason to celebrate as students received another set of strong GCSE results yesterday, Faith Ajagbe writes.
Seventy-eight per cent of pupils achieved at least five GCSEs at grades A*-C, including English and Maths, while 45.3 per cent of pupils achieved the English Baccalaureate – an improvement on 2015.
A few of the highest-achieving pupils included Maureen Nwabueze (eight A* two A), Estelle Darko (eight A* two A) and Azenosa Osazee (six A* three A).
Serge Cefai, head teacher of Sacred Heart School, said: “For Sacred Heart School to once again perform so strongly at GCSE level is a testament to the hard work of our staff and pupils.”
Students’ hard work was noticeable through the departmental results. In Biology (100 per cent A*-C), Physics (100 per cent A*-C) Arts and Design (100 per cent A*- C) Chemistry (98 per cent A*-C) and Graphics (94 per cent A*-C). 91 per cent of all pupils achieved at least two A*-C grades in Science.
Mr Cefai said: “Our provisional result for Progress 8 [a new measure of progress in pupils’ scores in eight key subjects] is 1.09, which is an absolutely fantastic score. We hope to be able to confirm this in November when the Department for Education are due to release their data.”
Also among the best performances were: Andrea Cruz Borges (four A* and six A), Estelle Uba (four A* six A), Abrehet Semra (four A* five A), Jennifer Ogbebor (four A* five A) and Oghomwen Obasuyi (three A* seven A).
