As a school, we have continued to do well in our results this year.
Not only have we maintained some of the great results we achieved last year, particularly in the core subjects of English and Maths, but in the vast majority of other subjects, our A*-C grades have continued to improve as well.
This is particularly pleasing in a year where GCSE grades are more volatile, exams are the hardest they have ever been for a number of years and the top grades are far harder for pupils to achieve.

- 68% of pupils achieved an A*-C in Maths .
- 59% of pupils got an A*-C in Maths and English.
