GCSE Exam Results Update: Summer 2017

We are delighted to announce another incredibly successful year, which reflects our unlimited ambition and passion for success for all of our students. Once again, our results are record breaking and indicate that the school is thriving and continuing to go from strength to strength. We congratulate our students on their magnificent achievement and thank the staff for their immense dedication, care and support given at all times.

We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our students, particularly given the challenges faced with the more demanding content in courses and different assessment regimes in English and Maths.

Progress 8 Explained

Progress 8 is a new measure of secondary school performance. It replaces the previous measure of the percentage of pupils that achieved 5 A*-C including English and Maths GCSE. It shows how well pupils of all abilities have progressed, compared to pupils with similar academic starting points in other schools.
