2012-13 EXAMINATIONS REPORT

At the last meeting of the Education Committee, Chairperson, the Hon Christine Scipio-O’Dean and Committee members, received a report which set out details of the performance of St Helena’s schools during 2012-13.

Although Primary attainment declined slightly in 2012, Secondary achievement showed good improvement over the same period. Director of Education, Colin Moore told the Committee:
“Strategies are in place to address areas of weakness and to continue the upward trend in Secondary School results. New tests, changes to grading criteria and a general drive to raise the bar in terms of academic standards do mean that direct comparisons with the performance in previous years should be treated with caution.

“The overall picture is one that suggests that we are now much more responsive to the individual learning needs of all children and young people.

“Nevertheless, there is no room for complacency and Education must remain a top priority of St Helena Government if the Island is to complete in an ever changing and rapidly developing world economy.”
