GCSE Results

We could not be more proud of our students today!

5% achieved grade 9 in English, which is above the national expectation of 3%. 59% passed the English Baccalaureate which is our best result ever. This truly demonstrates the potential of our determined students.

4% of our students achieved 8 to 9 grades in Maths and 9% achieved 8 to 9 in English. We achieved 59 8/9 grades overall, which is equivalent to the old A/A* grades.

We are very pleased with these results and they represent the hard work of students and teachers, and the continuing support of our parents. Whilst pleased, we are by no means complacent; we are aiming for higher and look to improve every year.
