Amongst an array of fantastic results, there were some outstanding outcomes for individual students.

They include Chloe Lennon (A*A*A) will take up a place at Goldsmith’s, Sharon Darkwa (A*AA) who will study Medicine, Natasha Basham (A*AC) who will study Veterinary Science whilst Precious Ogu (A*AB) will take up a place at university in Connecticut, USA. Commenting on her results, Precious remarked: “St Saviour’s & St Olave’s School has really shaped me and given me brilliant support during my seven years here. It has helped me to mature and given me a great grounding for the future.”
The following students achieved top grades in all their subjects:
Bea Pearson (AAA)
Tumi Adepimbe (AAA)
Bolu Soyebo (AAA)
In addition, a range of students made exceptional progress between GCSE and A Level and the overwhelming majority achieved places at their first choice university. The excellent advice and guidance throughout the 6th Form ensured that 8 students received unconditional offers. A small number of students used the clearing system and were well supported in school by Into University.
Headteacher, Catherine May, said: “I am absolutely delighted with these results. Our girls are going to study at top universities, in the UK and abroad, and are accessing great opportunities in the world of work. This reflects their hard work, the commitment of their teachers and the support of their families. I am particularly proud that from our relatively small 6th Form our girls have succeeded in such a wide range of academic subjects from Further Maths to Drama and from Modern Languages to Psychology. I am sure that in addition to their academic success they also have the personal skills and qualities to make their mark on the world. I wish them every success and look forward to hearing about their adventures!”
Head of 6th Form, John Breslin expressed his delight: “This confirms my belief that whether you are aiming for the best universities or the most prestigious industry placements, St Saviour’s girls have shown that with hard work and commitment, you can achieve these goals. Our staff have given students outstanding teaching and guidance. There are big changes approaching in the sixth form curriculum and future St Saviour’s students can be assured of the quality of the teaching they will receive.”
