Thank you very much for an inviting us! Students gave great feedback about learning the importance of body language and remaining composed, and were grateful for the opportunity to test their new skills with subject specialists in the mock interview.

A Level Results 2019

Great A level results this year, we are delighted again with the results that our students have achieved.

A* 14% 13% 9% 15% 8%

This year has been the first full cycle of the reformed A Levels. All staff have worked extremely hard to ensure that all students were well prepared for the new styles of assessment, with very limited resources provided by exam boards. We have continued to exceed the national benchmarks and we are very proud of the results our students have achieved. We pride ourselves on having a varied and full curriculum, and we have experienced great success across a range of subject areas, we have also seen impressive results with our Extended Project Results, with the average grade attained being an 'A'.

The majority of students have taken up their first place offers at university and we are so proud of every one of them.  Two students have taken up places at Oxbridge, and two students have places for medicine. The varied and exciting pathways and subjects our students have taken is definitely a cause for celebration.
