Today, many students at St Andrews Church of England School in Croydon celebrated strong GCSE results.
This year’s results saw a good number of students getting level 4’s in Maths and English.* There has been a pleasing number of A and A* grades (level 7/8 and 9) across a large number of subjects including Maths, English, ICT and Biology. Students studying science have also made steady progress in their A-C grades with 83 per cent studying biology achieving a C or above. Modern Foreign Languages has continued to perform well, particularly in French.
Among this year’s top performers were Nana Amankwah with 9 GCSE grades all at A/A* (levels 8/9); Jamelia Greene, Elena Fiderio, Sarah Addy, Jordon O’Dongon, George Dion and Victoria Bailey, all with A-B grades (6-9).
Kerry Targett, headteacher at St Andrews said: “These students and many others in their year group have a lot to celebrate today and should be so very proud of their achievements, as all the staff here are.
“As a school, we are committed to ensuring that every student achieves their aspirations and it’s reassuring to know that, our students will be able to enter further education and employment, secure in the knowledge that they are building on very firm foundations. We wish them all the best and look forward to hearing of their continuing success.”
Over the past year, the school has celebrated a number of successes including its partnership with The British Theatre Academy, giving several students the opportunity to take part in the west end production of The Colour Purple, as well as hosting a range of musical theatre workshops and STEM opportunities for local primary schools in order to prepare them for secondary school life.
St Andrew’s School will be hosting a number of Open Evening events throughout October where Kerry and the team will be on hand to welcome prospective parents and students and highlight all the great things that the school has to offer. For more information visit www.standhigh.net
