GCE Results Day
Results day for our 6th Formers
St Saviour’s and St Olave’s is celebrating another fantastic set of A Level results. We are proud of the results of all our students, but especially celebrate the determination of Oluwasola Asaolu and Evie Cakebread who both achieved A*A*A*, Esther Igali who achieved A*A*A and Thi-Hoa Nguyen who achieved A*AA. Three of these students will be studying at Oxbridge in September.
Catherine May, Headteacher, said “I’m thrilled that this year group have shown exceptional resilience in the face of what has been an incredibly challenging year. These strong results mean that all of our students are going to progress in the area they have chosen, whether that be university, apprenticeships or taking their first steps on their chosen career path. Some of our girls have been with us since year 7, others joined us in the sixth form and have been with us for two years, but they have all shown consistent success during their time at St Saviour’s. Despite everything that has been going on around them they are looking forward to the future with optimism, and they will be successful. I genuinely can’t wait to see what impact these amazing young women will have on the world.”
Pleasingly, all students who wanted to attend university have been accepted to study at a wide variety of institutions, many of them Russell group. As always, our students will be studying a diverse range of subjects including: two students going to Oxford university to study English and Biology, a student going to Cambridge university to study Human, Social and Political Sciences and a student going to Queen Mary University to study Dentistry. This is a real testament to the success of a small, but ambitious sixth form determined to ensure that all students flourish.
This year as our students dealt with the disappointment of having their examinations cancelled, staff were guided through a thorough and robust moderation process designed to ensure that all students achieved the grades they had worked for and deserved. Deputy Headteacher, Michelle Ferguson who led on this said, “Our students demonstrated incredible resilience and maturity during this process and staff acted with absolute integrity. We are grateful to our staff and immensely proud of our amazing students and their incredibly supportive families.”
Head of Sixth Form Hannah Kennedy said: “We are extraordinarily proud of the achievements of all of our girls this year. They have displayed resilience in the face of ever-changing news about exams and results, and have felt trepidation about the grades they may receive in a way that no other cohort has ever faced. These results reflect the culmination of seven years of hard work for these students and absolutely deserve to be celebrated.”
