Best Ever Results in 2017



"We are delighted to announce our best ever GCSE results for the fifth consecutive year, with our percentage of students achieving five A*-C grades incl. English and maths rising to 65%!"

"The BBC have reported that 'experts say the new exams are the toughest since the late 1980s' and 'the two core subjects feature tougher content and exam questions.' We couldn't be more proud to have continued our upwards trend in the face of such challenging examinations."

"Congratulations to our students and staff for their incredible hard work and dedication in achieving these results and many thanks to our parents for their outstanding support."

Peter Gillett, Headteacher

I want to thank all of my teachers for helping me along my journey! I started the year expecting Ds in most subjects, but with their aid they quickly rose to As and Bs.
