Convent delighted at high position in school league tables

Grays Convent pupils achieved high levels at GCSE, well above the National Averages, according to the recently published School Performance Tables.

65% of pupils achieved 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths, a figure well above the National Average and the second highest figure for the Convent in the last 4 years.

Pupils at the Convent sit an average 9.4 GCSEs in a range of subjects, these are well established, recognised qualifications and moreover each pupil takes a GCSE in Religious Studies, a humanities subject not included in the statistics for the English Baccalaureate.

Headteacher Miss Brister said “I am proud of our pupils and staff on their achievements; this puts Grays Convent in the top 25% of schools nationally in terms of progress made by pupils”.

Highlights for the Convent included:

97% of high attaining pupils achieved 5 A*-C grades at GCSE including English and Maths

Special congratulations to Opeyemi Adekoye, Lauren Carson, Amelia Darbro, Katy Jones, Aimee Summer, Rebecca Terry and Beth Winslow, who all gained A*s and As in all of their 9 GCSEs.

Convent pupils achieved well above the national levels for progress in English and Maths with 80% of pupils achieving expected progress in Maths, significantly higher than the National average.

Miss Brister added, “We work very hard as a school to support all our pupils and are especially proud of our pupils who for one reason or another are disadvantaged. 57% of these girls achieved 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths, which meets the National average for all pupils, not just those who might be facing difficulties.

I am proud of each and every girl’s achievement. At present our attendance figures are at a record high of 95.4%, a sure sign that our pupils are enjoying school and are focussed on achieving well. Once again, I thank pupils and staff and especially our parents for all they do to support their daughter’s education”.
