Head-teacher Mr Serge Cefai said:
“Every year the national context for GCSE results gets more and more challenging, due to constant changes in curricula and the measures by which schools’ performances are monitored by the government. For Sacred Heart school to once again perform so strongly at GCSE level, on top of fantastic A Level results last week, is a testament to the hard work of our staff and pupils. It is also important to note that the headline measure for this year is pupil progress and the new criteria known as Progress 8. Our provisional result for Progress 8 is 1.09, which is an absolutely fantastic score. We hope to be able to confirm this in November when the Department for Education are due to release their data.”
