Continued outstanding Post -16 success at Cardinal Pole Catholic School

Cardinal Pole Catholic School is delighted to report continued outstanding Post -16 success at the school. Students and staff have worked well together to overcome the challenges of post 16 preparation, especially this year, securing  22% A*A Grades, 63% A*-B grades, 88 % A*-C grades and 100% A*-E grades. Already graded outstanding, these results have continued to improve year on year. It is rewarding to see that our results continue to be well above local and national outcomes and that our progress measures at the school continue to place us in the top 2% of schools nationally. Vocational results in Business were exceptional, with 70% of students achieving the maximum grade of D*D*D*.  Many students secured exceptional individual results, including Helena Boateng who achieved AAA and a place to study HSPS at the University of Cambridge, Joel Owusu-Ansah who secured A*A*B and will study Medicine at Kent and Medway Medical School, and Toyosi Olaribigbe who with A*A*A will study Computer Science at the University of Birmingham.

 

Headteacher,  Jane Heffernan, said “these results have provided a platform on which students can build a successful future.” Most students have accepted places at top universities, including the prestigious Russell Group Universities of Cambridge, Bristol, Warwick and Birmingham.  They will be studying a wide range of subjects including Medicine, Law, Architecture, Chemistry, Maths  Business, and Nursing, and prestigious apprenticeships.  Ms Heffernan was delighted to welcome Annie Gammon, Director of Education in Hackney,  to the school to join in the celebrations with staff, students and Governors.  Fr David Evans praised the work of staff and the efforts of students throughout this challenging time. Ms Gammon congratulated the students in  their achievements, recognising that these results enabled our students in Hackney education to go on to contribute to their community and the wider world.
