Matric Results 2016 – interim report and overview
Every child in South Africa can and will exceed expectations if provided a real opportunity to learn and liberate in a school learning environment that is caring, challenging, personal and lives out relentless high expectations!
The results of the LEAP class of 2016 have again proven this hypothesis without any doubt! The pioneering culture embedded within LEAP continues to live out new exciting benchmarks and milestones that exhibit that all children can and will succeed!
Some examples of breakthrough milestones:
The class of 2016 achieved the following as a whole:
– 97% pass rate for the largest ever LEAP cohort
– 67% bachelor pass rate – a 5% improvement on the previous best
– over 90% of our graduates will be able to gain admission in tertiary study institutions – a 10% improvement on previous best
– largest number of distinctions achieved by a LEAP class – 150
– improved subject averages in almost all subjects – most notably in Physical Science
– 70 Life Orientation distinctions
– 18 Accounting distinctions; 15 English distinctions; 12 Maths distinctions; 11 Life Science distinctions; 10 Physical Science distinctions;
– 10 Mother Tongue distinctions; 9 History distinctions; 7 Business Economics distinctions
To illustrate the degree to which the hypothesis is reconfirmed here is a snapshot of some of the Individual LEAP school achievements:
LEAP 1 Langa, LEAP 5 Limpopo and LEAP 6 Ga Rankuwa achieved 100% pass rates!
LEAP 1 and 5 achieved the 100% pass rate for the second year running!
LEAP 6 is one of only 32 schools in Gauteng to have the 100% pass rate!
LEAP 4 Diepsloot achieved an incredible 90% bachelor pass rate within a 98% pass rate!
Bear in mind that by far the majority of LEAP 4 students’ results include core mathematics and physical science.
The 4 other Diepsloot schools had a bachelor pass rate average below 30% within a pass rate average below 70%.
Same children; same community context – radically different outcome!
100% of LEAP 4 students who passed will have access to tertiary study opportunity!
LEAP 2 serving Gugulethu, Philippi and Delft achieved a bachelor pass rate of over 70% within a 98% pass rate!
This has been achieved with the largest single LEAP school grade 12 cohort with children from the LEAP 2.5 satellite in matric for the first time!
This achievement within communities where the drop-out rate between grade 10 and grade 12 is over 50%; LEAP 2 attrition below 10% over three years
The average pass rate of schools in this area is below 70% and the average bachelor pass rate is below 40% mostly excluding maths and science.
LEAP 6 in Ga Rankuwa achieved a magical 100% subject pass rate – no student in the class failed any subject!
LEAP 1 Langa is one of only 28 schools to achieve a 100% pass in the Western Cape.
LEAP 1 is the only township school to have achieved 100% pass rate.
The combined results of LEAP 1 and LEAP 2 in Cape Town place LEAP as the leading school in the Western Cape serving township communities!
Here is a focus on some of the remarkable individual student achievements:
Top LEAP student for 2016 from LEAP 1, Khanyisa Mpemba, with 7 out of 7 distinctions including 94% for Mathematics!
Marvin Rangaoga from LEAP 5 acknowledged by Limpopo department of education for achieving 100% in Accounting and being in the top group of Limpopo students!
Morongwe Pride from LEAP 4 Diepsloot selected to be a recipient of the prestigious Allan Gray bursary First time for a LEAP student!
4 LEAP students achieved 6 distinctions!
And some of the amazing LEAP teachers and leaders:
LEAP 1 leader Lindelwa Mini is a LEAP pioneer graduate – 100% achieved in year 1 of her leadership! She grew up in the community of Langa!
Itai Matanda LEAP 5 Accounting teacher – 8 distinctions in his class including the 100% and class average of over 72%!
LEAP 2 LO team – 40 distinctions!
LEAP 1 and 2 History teacher Alex Bryant – 7 history distinctions
LEAP 4 Accounting teacher Shepherd Mabece, LEAP pioneer graduate, 1st matric class achieved just below 70% average [over 20% improvement]

Over 65 LEAP graduates now studying to become teachers within the Future Leaders Programme!!
LEAP 6 GaRankuwa leader Lawrence Manyesa and his young team lead the school to 100% subject pass rate
Celebrate with us – the ‘heart, head and hand’ work that we do together as a family every day in our schools within the framework of our unique code of conduct is enabling almost all of our students to get to tertiary study and to go beyond! Current internal tracking and research shows that over the 13 years of LEAP’s work more than 80 % of our school graduates are studying or have graduated from tertiary institutions.
We invite you to be an active part of this wonderful unfolding story – we need increased and ongoing support to continue building on this transformative foundation. There is much learning to do and we commit to continue to share our work with openness and the driven desire to enable as many children as possible to liberate themselves from the ongoing cycle of poverty that manifests itself in the extreme social inequity that is so visible in the communities in which we serve.
