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.

Yup, well done St Olaves!!! It's an amazing achievement turning all those bright and motivated year sevens into A grade 'A' level students and budding Oxbridge entrants. It's a wonder the local comps and colleges don't do as well but having no control over the quality of their intake has nothing to do with it... lol
