A Level August 2017
With nearly 60% of our entries achieving a top grade of B or better we are delighted with our A level results which reflect the hard work and commitment of our students and their teachers. At a time when the educational environment is changing so much and ever increasing challenges are being faced by today’s young people, all concerned can feel a real sense of pride in their individual and collective achievements. Students are progressing on to their preferred choice of course at university or moving in to apprenticeships or employment reflecting their favoured career pathway. In congratulating our students we also wish them continued success but more importantly every future happiness. Congratulations!

GCSE August 2017
The character and determination of students and their teachers to turn challenges in to opportunities are well evidence in this year’s hugely impressive GCSE results, backing up some exceptional A level results published last week. With GCSEs undergoing significant change our GCSE results reflect the resilience of students and teachers who, together, have achieved results that exceed expectations. Whilst drawing direct comparisons is difficult it seems we have exceeded the results of 2016 with headline figures of over 81% of the Year 11 cohort achieving the bench mark figure of 5 GCSE passes at A*- C including at least a grade 4 in English and Mathematics. Our results have improved at a time when nationally results have dipped with commentators stating “these are the hardest exams since 1980!” Our GCSE results are “fantastic”.
In Mathematics and in English, 5% of our students achieved the “exceptional” grade, grade 9, placing those students amongst the country’s elite.
Across all subjects 60% of entries achieved the equivalent of at least a grade B.
There are many collective and individual success stories, several in the face of personal trials, and students and teachers alike can take immense pride in some remarkable and inspiring results.
