Salvatorian College have achieved their best GCSE results ever. Under the Progress 8 measure, the expected progress is likely to be in excess of +0.3 which is a marked increase from -0.08 in 2016/2017. Under the new leadership of Executive Headteacher Martin Tissot, year 11 pupils have excelled.

Mr Tissot said, “This year 30% of all grades were above grade 7. With a state-of-the-art new building about to be delivered, the future is very bright for the school.”

Mr McAleer, Chair of Governors, said, “The results this year are testimony to a year of very hard work by students and staff alike and I am particularly pleased that the boys have done so well under the increased rigour of the examinations and the new, 1 to 9 marking system.”

Mr Bryant, Head of School, commended the hard work of pupils, the dedication of staff and Governors and the support of parents. He said, “The boys have done exceptionally well this year. The percentage of boys achieving a grade 4 or above in English and Maths has risen by 10% this year, to 77% (well above the Harrow and national average) and the percentage achieving grade 5 or above is 50%. The results also include a string of grade 9s; in the History department, 25% of all boys achieved grade 9. Our push for academia has given our boys a firm platform for future success.”

Mrs Griffin, Head of Year 11, said she was certain the boys’ success stems from the extra hours they commit to, as everyday there are additional lessons, and on every Saturday and in every holiday they attend supplementary timetabled lessons. Mrs Griffin said, “Having been in school on most of the Saturdays this year, I have seen the boys’ hard work and sacrifice and I am so pleased to see that they are reaping the rewards.”

There were great successes across the board, but five pupils are worthy of special mention having secured their places at St Dominic’s Sixth Form College: Head Boy Jack Ruddy secured four grade 8s and six grade 9s (including maths, English Language and Triple Science). Jack said, “I am glad to see the sweat and tears of the staff and students have turned to smiles and laughter on results day. I am so proud of the success of my year group.” Sepahr Mafi was rewarded with six grade 9s, including English Literature, Maths and Triple Science, along with two 8s, a 7 and an A in Drama. Callum Casey achieved six grade 9s, three grade 8s and a 7. Stephen Mulchrone secured four grade 9s, five grade 8s and a 6. Jojolomo Thabo achieved eight grade 8s, a 7 in French and an A.
