LSBC Academic Achievement Awards 2013
The eighth London Schools and the Black Child Academic Achievement Awards 2013, took place on 3rd October at The House of Commons.
This year we received more nominations than ever before and the standard was incredibly high. All of our GCSE students had 8A*’s and over; our A Level students no less than all A’s; and our university students no less than a first class degree. In addition their many other achievements, dedication to helping their wider community and some of the personal challenges that some have faced are a testament to their fine characters.
