VIP students attended an Oscar-themed evening in recognition of their improved GCSE results.

To celebrate the achievement, pupils from the Priory School in Tintagel Road, Orpington, attended a special screening of The Golden Compass at the Odeon in Leicester Square last Thursday.

London Schools Minister Andrew Adonis praised the school for being one of the most improved schools in the borough. Head teacher Nick Ware and sixth-form students, Esra Chimen, Sarah Hulbert and Alix Gould, were all congratulated and experienced the red carpet treatment, saw their name up on the big screen and received Oscar-style awards from Andrew Adonis.

Mr Ware said: "We had a fantastic time at the VIP event, it was a fitting celebration of London's best ever GCSE results. They are a reflection of how hard pupils, teachers and staff are working."

Some 61 per cent of pupils at the Priory School achieved 5 or more A to C GCSE passes in 2007.
