We would like to congratulate all pupils and staff who have risen to the challenge of this year’s new GCSEs. Yet another year of fantastic results, an incredible achievement for a non-selective school. We congratulate everyone who has worked so hard to adapt to the new style of exams.
We are delighted with our 89% 9 – 4 pass rate including English, Maths and Science.
Headteacher, Ross Bovingdon said: “The tougher standards demanded by the new style of GCSEs being awarded for the first time this year have put pupils under a great deal of additional pressure. The bar has deliberately been set at a higher level as a result of changes. The new exams are harder, contain more content, and involve sitting more papers. I am immensely proud of all our pupils, who continue to demonstrate that there simply is no substitute for hard work”
