In the first year of the reformed maths and English GCSE qualifications we are delighted to have maintained our record of excellence.
Mr Grieves has said of the results: "This is a year that has made everyone working in education uncertain and nervous about results and the government had warned us to expect turbulence. Looking at our results it is very clear that although the new GCSEs present students with a much higher level of challenge, those who have worked consistently hard have been rewarded with stunning results. We’ve got really strong performance across the board, for all subjects and whilst national data will not be released until later this year, we expect our student progress to remain well above the national average. It is particularly pleasing to see that a significant number of our students have achieved the new top grade of 9 in English and maths, a really exceptional achievement.
I am delighted that the hard work of students and staff has paid off and I would like to publicly thank the parents of our students for their unstinting support. Our students have done extremely well and we wish them every success with their chosen post 16 courses."
