It is amazing how quickly time passes. Another anxious wait is over and results are in.
Well done to everyone concerned.
Despite new tougher linear A levels and reformed GCSEs our students have risen to this challenge achieving some of the best exam results the school has seen.
There have been too many outstanding performances this year to name them all.
At GCSE level we have achieved our highest ever results, including a record-breaking 8-9 (A*) pass rate of 46%. That’s an increase of 18 percentage points on last year.
Nearly half of all our grades were at the very highest level.
This is an amazing achievement considering the tougher, new linear GCSEs.
Our 9-7% pass rate has increased yet again with 69% of passes at this level. This is a 17% point increase from last year. Again, another record-breaking achievement.
Based on provisional estimates our Progress 8 scores sits at +1.05 possibly placing us in the top 3% of schools nationally.
“We are delighted with the GCSE results this summer and incredibly proud of all our students. The students worked really hard and deserve this success. Many congratulations to them”
Ms Rockall Headteacher
We were also delighted to see so many relieved and very happy faces on A level results day. For many students this ends 7 years of study with us. They are about to begin another exciting chapter of their lives, many at prestigious universities or with world leading companies.
Our A*-A % pass rate increased to one of our all-time highs with 39% of all grades at the A*-A level.
This year saw many more students achieving at least 3 A grades or better and the vast majority have gained places in higher education, many in prestigious institutions.
