Our students are again celebrating superb GCSE results which saw 67% of students achieving the key measure of at least a grade 4 (equivalent to the previous A*-C measure) in both Maths and English new style GCSEs. Of these 68% achieved the new strong pass grade 5 in both subjects.
Many students exceeded their personal targets achieving some fantastic results. Top performers this year included:
Maddie Porter who achieved the top grade possible in every subject (grade 9 in Maths, in English Language and in English Literature, 7 A*s and a Distinction*),
Elliot Warner (grade 9 in Maths, 8 in English Language and 7 in English Literature, 6 A*s, 2As and grade B),

Headteacher Matthew Collins said ‘The achievements of all the students has been superb, new government measures take into account the progress made by every student in the year for the Progress 8 score and these are significantly above national thresholds – indicating high levels of success for students of all abilities.’ He went on to say that ‘the results were thoroughly deserved by this group of students and are testament to their attitude and hard work. I would also like to thank the teaching staff for the incredible amount of work they have put in to supporting this group of students at a time of significant national change. These results are excellent and can only help to further our reputation at a local and regional level.’
