THE Department for Education released GCSE and A-Level performance scores last week, with varying results for Bromley's schools.

The best performing Bromley school at both GCSE and A-Level was St. Olave's and St Saviour's Grammar School, Orpington.

The school has been one of the best performing in the country for a number of years, and continued to excel.

It finished in the top 20 nationally for results in GCSEs or equivalent, with 100 per cent of pupils achieving five or more A* to C grades.

Eltham College, Mottingham, also achieved 100 per cent in this category.

Wickham Court School had the lowest number of pupils achieving A* to C grades - only 27 per cent, 13 per cent below the nearest lowest ranked school, Darul Uloom School, Chistlehurst.

St. Olave's said: "Naturally we are all delighted with these results - they represent a well-deserved outcome from the hard work of staff and students.

"All of these achievements are particularly rewarding when set against a backdrop of some of the most stringent education funding cuts the school has ever witnessed."

Bromley’s Executive Member for Education, Cllr Stephen Wells said: “It is encouraging to see that once again this year high standards have combined with sheer hard work and dedication from so many students to produce such a pleasing set of GCSE results.”

At A-Level St Olave's again topped the list, with 51 per cent of students achieving 3 A levels at AAB.

However seven schools could only manage 0 per cent in this category, among them Bromley College, which finished in the bottom 200 schools in the country for exam results.
