An incredible 15 pupils gained the equivalent of at least 10 A* grades and 39 pupils each gained the equivalent of at least 10 A*/A grades. This year’s GCSE and A Level results are expected to show that the School has gained some of the highest results in the region.

Headmaster Kevin Fear said: “These are a stunning set of results following on from our brilliant A Level results last week. It is remarkable that over half of all of our passes were at A* level or Grades 8/9 given that the exams are getting much tougher.

Our students, their parents and their teachers can be incredibly proud of this significant achievement. This year group have worked incredibly hard and are also an impressive set of characters who excel in music, drama and on the sports fields. They are all so much more than just their academic achievements but it is tremendous that they have been rewarded by such fantastic results.”
