A school is celebrating its “remarkable turnaround”.

Salvatorian College, which inspectors said required improvement in 2012, has outperformed other schools in Harrow.

Data released by the Department for Education showed that boys at the school have scored higher attainment than boys at any other school in the borough.

Attainment is measured on the standard of the pupils’ work, shown by test and examination results.

The proportion of students achieving grade C or better in English and maths at GCSE was also the highest percentage for boys in the borough.

Head teacher Mr Paul Kassapian said: “We are immensely proud of the attainment and progress of our students.

“These results validate the hard work put in by our dedicated staff over the past four years to change the culture of the school.

“Our new school building project starts this Easter, meaning the whole school will be in state-of-the-art facilities from December 2018. These are exciting times for Salvatorian College.”
