A Level August 2016
“Our students, male and female alike, can feel justifiably proud of their results with virtually one in ten entries achieving the top grade of A*, over 64% of entries achieving at least a B grade and a pass rate of 100%.
Our pass rate and the percentage of entries achieving the top grades; A* and A are above national averages and this at a time when A levels continue to be increasingly more demanding.
These results are further testimony to the quality and consistency of our teaching and congratulations are extended to the students, their teachers and students’ parents on a very successful year. There are many individual success stories including Amber Sparks who is going to read History at Oxford and Laura Newell and Eva Yuen who are both off to University to read Medicine. But today is about the collective success of all our students and I wish them continued success as they embark on the next phase of their careers and above all continued happiness. Congratulations.”

GCSE August 2016
Our high and increased success rates at GCSEs are particularly impressive especially at a time of decreasing success rates nationally. With over 32% of GCSE entries achieving top grades of A*/A and over 80% of our students achieving the national bench mark figure of at least 5 GCSE passes at grade C or above, including English and Mathematics this year’s results are rather special. Here, teachers and students have addressed successfully the challenges of a nationally changing educational climate. Students, teachers and parents can take special pride in this year’s “amazing” results and I extend hearty congratulations to all.
These last two weeks have seen our proud tradition of success at GCSE level and at Advanced level maintained ensuring that our students continue to succeed in spite of having to face some of the biggest developments education has ever witnessed. Well done!
