GCSE RESULTS 2019
Many congratulations go to our amazing year 11 students who have achieved outstanding results for their GCSEs.
I am delighted to announce that this cohort of students have made exceptional progress. These results reflect the hard work and effort of all students, teachers and supportive parents. This is our third year of improved outcomes which demonstrates the school is going from strength to strength and is one of the most successful schools in Croydon. This year our Progress 8 score has improved by another .16 to achieve its best ever P8 score of +0.2. This means students have made fantastic progress from their starting point in year 7 as a results of the strong teaching and supportive learning environment here at OPHS.
