Excellent GCSE Results

Our students are, once again, celebrating significant achievements following receipt of their GCSE results. 50% of our Year 11 students have achieved 8 or more A*-C grades, with students achieving over 140 A+ grades, or higher, across their chosen subjects.

It is worth noting that, in the following subjects, 100% of the students achieved an A* to C grade (or equivalent): Art, Photography, Religious Studies, Spanish, Business, Health & Social Care, Sport, Travel & Tourism, Food & Cookery and Creative Studies (Music). As well as this, we have seen major improvements in the percentage of students achieving good grades in History, Computing and Geography. Students in Science have also been recognised for their dedication with 95% in Biology and 90% in Physics achieving good grades.

Students in English and Mathematics have completed the new style GCSE and will be the first to receive the new 9 to 1 grades. Overall it has been a good year and a year in which we have celebrated significant gains across a diverse range of subjects.

Particularly impressive results were achieved this year by Kennedy A, Euan E and Shelley Ewho all received top grades in both English and Mathematics.
