Congratulations to our Year 11 students on another fantastic set of GCSE results! These results follow a very impressive set of Year 13 A level and BTEC results two days ago.

Year 11 have truly espoused our school motto Ever to Excel by demonstrating great resilience and focus despite facing challenges due to the pandemic. I have been impressed by the determination of Year 11 students, who always tried their best and never gave up- knowing that they will be nurtured and supported to achieve their ambitions.

Year 11 went through a rigorous process of testing and assessment under a high level of control to secure the grades they have achieved, which are the gateway to their future. We look forward to welcoming our students back in the autumn term as they join our highly successful and happy sixth form.

Miss Sai Naidu, Head of Year 11 said, "It's been a long hard road, but you accomplished your goals and achieved your GCSE's today. You have used perseverance and personal performance to achieve the perfect success.  I stand today as a very proud Head of Year 11. I wish you all the very best.”

Mrs Indira Warwick, Headteacher said, “Our staff have worked closely with students and their families to support Year 11 through what has been a very challenging time in education. Our staff really believe in our students and their resolve to help each and every student achieve their ambition has enabled our Year 11 students to truly flourish. Most of our students have met and exceeded their target grades. I am proud to say that St Andrew the Apostle School is a wonderful community-led school, where hard-working and aspirational students can succeed and where every child is known."

Chair of Governors, Mrs Mary Karaolis OBE said, “I would like to warmly congratulate the staff, students and their families on these excellent results. We look forward to our school continuing to provide a Greek Orthodox faith values-based education, leading to high academic standards in an educational environment that is welcoming to all.”
