Campion School

Campion School’s examination results this summer were a cause for celebration. The IB results were published on July 5 and the top score was 44 points (out of a maximum of 45), earned by Natalie Papanastasiou, who thereby secured her place to study Geography at Cambridge University. Close behind with 43 points was Catherine Ninos, who will be reading Law at the University of Newcastle. The average diploma score was 33 points with over 30 percent of candidates gaining 35 points or more. With these very good results almost all of the school’s students who wished to continue their studies in UK universities met the conditions of either their Firm or Insurance offers. At GCSE, the percentage of students gaining a grade A* – C rose to an all-time high of 89.7 percent, more than 10 percentage points greater than in any previous year. This is a remarkable result for a school which encourages students to take their final examinations in all their chosen subjects regardless of past performance. The school’s next project is to raise money to develop an 11,000 m2 plot of land, situated just 3 minutes’ walk from the school. A full-sized soccer pitch will be the central feature of this development although the space will be designed flexibly to allow maximum use both in tournaments and in everyday teaching and coaching. Campion’s teachers, parents, pupils and students are looking forward to another action-filled and rewarding year!
