ERITH SCHOOL’S BEST EVER RESULTS!
Year 11 results day –
Thursday 25 August 2016
Students are celebrating as standards continue to rise at Erith School where 53% of students succeeded in obtaining A*-C grades in both English and Maths. This represents an increase on last year’s record breaking figures in spite of a national picture of volatility and declining results.
There are two new performance indicators that will be used in league tables this year and we are pleased to report that the Progress 8 measure is up significantly on last year and the Attainment 8 score (an average grade across all subjects) has moved from a D to a C.
The school’s top achievers are: Manjola Matranxhi who got 5As, 5A*s and an incredible A* with distinction in Further Maths; Lucia Grzenkowicz-Taylor who got 5A*s, 5As and 2Bs; Martha Ehikioya who got 5A*s, 6As and a B; Joshua Waterfall who got 4A*s, 7As and a B, and Lucy O’Brien who got 4A*s 5As and a B.
A delighted Headteacher, Stephanie Allen, said, “We are incredibly proud of all of our students’ achievements at Erith School. This is down to their hard work and that of their teachers. Our core aim is to improve the life chances of students of all abilities and we feel we have achieved this. We look forward to welcoming many of these students back into our successful sixth form.”

MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNING BODY
With the recent sad loss of our Chairman of Governors, we are writing to reassure you all of our continued support for Erith School and to strive, to the best of our abilities, to build on the work that David Friend so passionately and enthusiastically carried out in his many long years of service. His legacy and dedication to Erith was outstanding.
Having discussed how we could manage the transition, Governors agreed that Peter Carter and Ann Nuckley, who have previously been joint Vice Chairs, should assume the roles of joint co-Chair of Governors. This decision will be formally ratified at the final main Governing Body meeting of this Academic Year which takes place on Wednesday 20th July 2016. It is anticipated that this arrangement will be in place until August 2017 when a further review will take place.
The Governing Body will continue to work closely with the Senior Executive Team to ensure that we go forward together to positively support and meet Erith School’s new challenges.
Peter Carter and Ann Nuckley
