A government minister has praised St John Fisher Catholic Comprehensive School for its students’ continued improvement at GCSE. In a letter to David Kelly, the school's headteacher, Jim Knight MP, Minister of State for Education commended the school for sustained improvement at GCSE based on it results in English and maths during the past two years. The results, based on the measure of five GCSEs at A*-C grades including English and maths, show an improvement from 34 per cent to 45 per cent between exams taken in 2005 and those taken in 2007. Headteacher David Kelly said: “We are producing strong results and we are rightly proud of our achievements. To receive this level of praise is excellent - it’s good to see our hard work is being recognised. We will strive to continue to improve our GCSE results year on year.” Medway Council’s Director of Children’s Services Rose Collinson said: “This is very good and well worth celebrating. The school rightly deserves this praise and I’m confident it will continue to make progress and improvement.”
