Achievements

28 September 2015

Bygrove awarded Gold Club status for exceptional educational achievements.

Bygrove Primary in Tower Hamlets has been awarded Gold Club status under a scheme set up by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to recognise exceptional schools in the capital. The Gold Club is part of the Mayor's drive to boost standards and raise attainment for all schoolchildren wherever they live in the capital and regardless of background.

London’s schools continue to outperform the rest of the country with last year’s GCSE results showing the city as the top English region for the sixth consecutive year.

In highlighting and celebrating schools that are 'bucking the trend', especially those that have pupils with previously low attainment, the aim is to inspire even more schools in London to strive for similar academic success and offer them the chance to learn from the Gold Club schools.

Bygrove has been awarded Gold Club status, because of the outstanding achievements of all pupils at the end of KS2 but particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. For the second year running, 100% of Bygrove’s pupils attained at least L4 in each of reading, writing & maths. The national average for this combined measure was 80% (& only 67% for disadvantaged pupils). A very large proportion of these pupils achieved L5+, with one in 3 pupils attaining L6 in maths.

‘We were delighted to have been awarded Gold Club status again this year, headteacher Jeremy Iver commented, ‘and particularly pleased to discover that Bygrove is one of only 15 schools in the Capital to have maintained this status for three years running. Our great results are testament to the extraordinary dedication & hard work of all the staff & pupils here & no less than they deserve.

Mr Iver added, ‘We have enjoyed delivering training sessions & seminars on behalf of the London Schools Gold Club in the past & look forward to getting stuck in again this year.’

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson commented: 'Congratulations to Bygrove School for its outstanding achievements and for the hard work of its pupils and teaching staff. London schools are going from strength to strength and our Gold Club members are testament to the fact all schools can aspire to attain excellence for all their pupils, whatever their circumstances. The Gold Club is a great platform for schools to share their bright ideas and approaches to enable every one of their pupils to achieve terrific results.”

113 schools have been awarded Gold Club status in 2015, the third year the scheme. They are being asked to share their good practice through seminars and hosting visits to their school so that other schools can learn from a range of approaches that have delivered success and achieved extraordinary performance of their pupils.  We are delighted to say that Bygrove is one of those 113 schools!
