Exam results at Our Lady of Sion are always strong, but class and year group sizes are much smaller than in most schools. This makes them difficult to compare statistically both nationally and locally.

Our Lady of Sion Year 11 students are celebrating yet another year of excellent GCSE results, with almost 25% of grades awarded at 9 or 8. Sciences attained outstanding results, with 35% of Chemistry grades at 9. The Arts, including Dance and Art, gained 25% of grades at 9 and French excelled with 30% Grade 9/8.

Abigail Hughes achieved seven Grade 9s and 3 Grade 8s with Oliver Manners attaining four Grade 9s and five Grade 8s, both will also be continuing their A level studies here at Sion. Eleven-year-old Thomas Valantin, the son of one of Sion’s teachers, took his French GCSE early at Sion and achieved a grade 9.
