Impressively, almost a quarter of all grades awarded were A*/A or Distinction.

The joint top performing students, Lauren Coull and Lydia Pouncey each achieved 9 A*, 2 A graded GCSEs and a Distinction in ICT.

The range of success is extremely satisfying and our congratulations go to everyone who has worked so hard to gain these excellent results. They demonstrate that commitment from students, combined with dedication and expertise of staff, can improve life chances for young people. We would also like to thank parents for working so closely with us, as it plays a vital role in the achievements of every single student.’
