GCSE boost for SE1 schools

Two SE1 schools have been praised after their GCSE results leaped by 12 and 20 percentage points on the previous year.

The percentage of pupils at St Saviour's and St Olave's School, New Kent Road, who got five or more A*-C grades soared from 40 percent last year to 60 percent this summer.

Teenagers at Notre Dame High, Elephant and Castle, also did exceptionally well, with 67 percent of pupils getting five or more A*-C grades this year, a rise of 12 percentage points on last year.

Southwark Council's Executive Member for Education, Cllr Bob Skelly, said: "This is a phenomenal result for both St Saviour's and Notre Dame.

"Staff and pupils at both schools deserve congratulations for doing even better than last year.

"Both schools are very popular with parents, and with this sort of achievement, they deserve to be."
