Bishop Thomas Grant School in the Top 100 Schools Nationwide

The school’s February mailbox revealed the news that Bishop Thomas Grant is now placed in the top 100 schools nationwide in the state sector for its GCSE results.  This completes the turnaround of the school since the arrival of Mr Desa as Headteacher in September 2001, at a time when, as he commented in his first newsletter, "Very few people wanted their children to come to the school" – and also just before Streatham High Road, 500 yards from the school, was labelled as "the worst street in Britain" in a government quango report in 2002.

This news came from government Minister for Schools Nick Gibb, who wrote to congratulate the school on being placed in the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools in England.  The letter from Mr Gibb can be viewed by clicking here

These achievements are acknowledged not only on a government level but also locally.  In February at the Lambeth Achievement Awards ceremony at the Royal Festival Hall no less than 48 Bishop Thomas Grant School pupils received certificates to mark their significant achievements at Key Stages 3 and 4 (GCSE).
