Head teacher, Kate Parker Randall said: “I am very proud of all of our students. There have been some exceptional individual performances with some students achieving the highest grade possible which is a 9 in the new GCSE format.

“The changes in GCSE subject matter and assessment have been a huge challenge and it is a great credit to our students that they rose to the occasion and worked very hard to achieve this fine set of results.

"Recognition has to be given to the strong partnership work between parents and carers and our incredibly driven teaching and pastoral staff team who go the extra mile to ensure students achieve their very best.

"On behalf of the entire school community, I congratulate our fantastic students on their achievements, which will enable them to progress to their desired post 16 destinations across a wide range of academic and vocational pathways.”
