A total of 630 students sat for the examinations held in Nov 2016 with 96.2% of them achieving at least 3H2 passes including GP. This maintains the upward trend the College has seen in recent years. We are proud of ALL our students. While we cannot highlight them all we have chosen these Saints below as the epitomes of the Saint Spirit and student. They have done us proud not just with their results but because they represent the very best qualities of exemplary Saints demonstrating their ability to balance both academics and co-curricular activities.
