At GCSE 93% of students achieved 5+ A*-C grades with 65% achieving the benchmark including English and maths. The percentage of A*/A grades has increased from 18% to 21% and the proportion of all GCSE grades at A*-C was 77% which is 8% above the national average. These are an excellent set of GCSE results and go against the national trend of a slight decline in GCSE results.

In the Sixth Form we achieved 96% pass rate at A-level with 40% of all grades A*-B. This places the school in the top 40% of providers nationally for value added. Performance in vocational subjects was again outstanding with 90%  of all grades either Distinction * or Distinction and places us in the top 10% of providers nationally. These outstanding results were key to ensuring that students were able to fulfil their ambitions of either gaining a place at the university of their choice, starting an apprenticeship or entering employment. We wish all of our students every success for the future.

I am sure that with continued hard work and commitment of students and their teachers we will be celebrating even greater success in 2015.
