News from Lynne Jones MP

I issued the following press release on 13.01.2005


Lynne Jones MP has this week congratulated Bishop Challoner Catholic School and Bournville School and Sixth Form Centre for their success in being named as two of the hundred most improved schools in England. This recognition is based on the sustained improvement in GCSE results at Bishop Challoner and Bournville between 2001 - 2004.

At Bournville the number of students gaining five or more GCSE’s has increased from 40% in 2001 to 76% today.  At Bishop Challoner the figure has increased from 57% to 86%. The improvement in results shows that Labour’s investment in education is making a difference and driving up standards.

Rt Hon Ruth Kelly MP, the Secretary of State for Education and Skills said:

“I would like to congratulate both Bishop Challenor and Bournville for their success in being in the top one hundred most improved schools in the country. The improvement is a credit to the hard work of the pupils, parents and staff. It is also a result of the investment this government has put into our schools.”

Local MP, Lynne Jones said:

“The improved results Bishop Challenor and Bournville are a credit to the hard work of pupils, teachers and parents. I am proud that their work has been recognised and that our young people are being given the opportunity to reach their full potential.”

“Labour’s investment and reform of secondary schools has produced real results for our young people. The improvement in Bishop Challenor school and Bournville School and Sixth Form Centre shows that with Labour our schools are getting better.”
