There were smiles all round on GCSE results day with our retiring Y11 students celebrating truly excellent results.
As you will see from the breakdown below most results showed an improvement over last year with over a quarter of students getting 5 or more 9-7 grades which are equivalent to the old A/A* and 86% students passing their English GCSE, 74% passing both English and maths.
There were some particularly notable individual successes including those pictured on these pages. Below: Superstars Ella, Freya and Chloe, who achieved 10 Grades at grade 9 to 7 each and Jess who achieved 9 Grade 9's and one grade A*.
Left: Harry Lampier left celebrated 2 Grade 9's, 4 Grade 8's and 3 Grade 7's
Chris Price, overleaf, celebrated 5 Grade 9's and 5 Grade
Overleaf: Sam and Samuel, pictured with their Year 11 Yearbook, between them achieved 6 Grade 9's, 5 Grade 8's and 4 Grade 7's.
There were many other triumphs where students overcame difficult times to get the GCSEs they needed for the next stage of their lives or exceeded expectation through hard work and perseverance. Well done to you all!
We look forward to welcoming the class of 2018 back to school for Year 12 Presentation Evening on Thursday 22nd November at 7pm.
