Message from Headteacher, Mrs Nunn:

"GCSE results 2017 are fantastic again, our students have worked extremely hard and we are so proud to see them achieve their best. Examination reforms at GCSE mean that results have been difficult to predict and this has led to extra work among staff and students. Although results cannot be compared to previous years we feel confident that our 2017 students have achieved exceptionally well.  I would like to thank staff who have worked so hard to prepare and support students with their progress during this period of exam reform and curriculum change."

Message from Headteacher, Mrs Nunn: 
"I am absolutely thrilled and very proud of the students who have worked extremely hard to get the fantastic GCSE results they deserve.  I would like to thank staff for their hard work, superb teaching and commitment to support the students across the school.  We are proud of all of our students, many of whom will now be joining our outstanding sixth form (within top 10% of sixth forms in the country -  A level results in 2016 show over 75% of results at A* to B grades)"

A level Results 2017

Great A level results for the second year of our sixth form, we are delighted again with the results that our students have achieved. 

This has been a challenging year with the Government imposed exam and curriculum reforms placing all members of the school under considerable additional pressure. All staff have worked extremely hard to ensure students were well prepared in the face of such constant, large-scale, change. In spite of the extra challenge our students have achieved excellent grades.

There have been some outstanding achievements, notably 23 students (out of 124) achieved straight A* or A grades.  Special congratulations to Sam Knott who achieved 4 A* grades and Lucia Karageorghis who achieved 3 A* grades.  Four of our students achieved grades to take up their places at Oxbridge. 

The majority of students have taken up their first place offers at university and we are so proud of every one of them.
