The percentage of pupils gaining five A* to C grades at GCSE at schools around the Magdalen Estate and across the London borough of Wandsworth, has risen considerably, particularly at a number of individual institutions.
Graveney School in Tooting, just down the road from the Magdalen Estate, gained the highest score of any state school in the borough, with 81% of pupils making the grade, whilst Putney High School scored highest, with a huge 99% of girls getting great results. The biggest rise in results was at John Paul II in Southfields; in 2010, 50% of pupils received the five A* to C grades, up from the previous year’s 27%, but it was Chestnut Grove who scored Wandsworth’s highest contextual value score. The score demonstrates overall pupil improvement, from years 7 to 11; the Balham school scored 1071, the seventh best in the country.
