ON AUGUST 25th, YourThurrock published a story entitled: “Grays Convent in Crisis”. The story related to the fact that in 2o08, the school was the top school in the borough in relation to the percentage of students who gained 5 or more GCSE’s at A* to C.
The word “crisis” was used in relation to the fact that the school now sits fifth in the league and 28% behind the school in first place.
On the 16th September, YT attended a meeting with the headmistress and deputy headmistress. They were keen to point out that there were a number of other statistics that illustrate that the school is second in one ranking and also in the top 25% range in the country in another.
YT is happy to point this out and apologises unreservedly.
