Another excellent year of G.C.S.E. performance for the girls of Sacred Heart. Overall one third of grades were 7 – 9 and a quarter of students achieved all grade 7 and above which is a fantastic achievement. Despite the introduction of new tougher technical awards, many of our students achieved the highest grades in Health and Social Care. The overall progress of our students is the highest it has been since this new measure was introduced. This is wonderful news as we are so proud of the achievements of all our students.
