We have enjoyed a very happy morning full of celebration watching our pupils open their exam results which were once again superb. The pupils displayed a mature work ethic for the duration of their studies and therefore thoroughly deserved to do so well. 76% of our pupils secured 5A*- C including English and Maths and 31% of all grades were achieved at A*/A. 24 pupils, representing 19% of the year group, attained 8 or more GCSEs graded A*/A which is an incredible achievement. This underlines how determined to succeed this year group was. These wonderful results will keep us amongst the highest performing schools in the country and show that the vast majority of our pupils make expected or better than expected progress and are ready to continue their post-16 studies. I would like to extend my personal congratulations to every one of our pupils on achieving these excellent results and am grateful to our dedicated staff for supporting our pupils and for their hard work and dedication.
