Number of candidates: 122
A* - E pass rate: 99.4%
A* - C pass rate: 82%
A*/A pass rate: 25%
Head Teacher, Vicky Neale said, “it is always rewarding to see a group of young people rightly excited about moving onto the next phase of their lives and, once again, our students have achieved what they need to do just that. They have done extremely well across the ability range and 25% of all grades are A*/A. Five students will take up places at Oxford and Cambridge this year, while three girls have secured, equally sought after, degree apprenticeships two with international computing companies and the third for engineering with BAE systems. Amongst the top performers are Eddie Wilkinson with A*s in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Further Mathematics and Emma Le Poidevin with A*s in Art, French and History. I thank the staff for all they do to provide a well-rounded education for all our students and our parents for their support. On behalf of their teachers and tutors, I congratulate the students and wish them every success for the next phase of their lives.”

Percentage gaining level 4+ in both English and mathematics: 75%
Mrs Neale said, “We are delighted with these results and right across the ability range students have done themselves proud. A quarter of all grades are 7s, 8s and 9s and, amongst the top performing students are Rose Bainbridge and Jacob Cook who both achieved eight grade 9s and an A grade in additional mathematics. Once again, our policy of students taking the rigorous English Baccalaureate, a creative subject and a wide range of extra-curricular activities has proven to be the right one. I thank the staff who do such an excellent job and congratulate all the students: they certainly deserve to celebrate their achievements today.”
