Students and staff at Virgo Fidelis are celebrating some excellent GCSE results at a time when the introduction of tougher examination standards across the suite of subjects proves challenging for many students.
We are delighted with the individual performance of many of our students. It is fantastic to see all the hard work, dedication and effort that pupils and staff put in day after day at Virgo Fidelis reap such positive outcomes.
Our proudest achievement this year is that students from disadvantaged backgrounds outperformed their peers at Virgo Fidelis.
On average across the country students from disadvantaged backgrounds are 18 months behind their peers by the age of 16, but at Virgo Fidelis this year, we have not simply narrowed the gap but closed it entirely. We are proud of the support we give to all our students and are delighted that the love and care we provide has paid off so clearly in these results.
