We would like to congratulate all of our students on their results this summer. These results are the best in the school's history with an amazing 50% of all entries graded A* or A (or equivalent). 71% of all entries were graded A*-B. The percentage of A* grades at A Level doubled this year.

There were many outstanding individual performances and the school is delighted that four students will be going on to study at Oxford or Cambridge with a further eight taking up courses in medicine or dentistry.

In Sports Science, every student achieved a Distinction* and in A Level Economics, every student achieved an A* or A grade.

Head of School Andy Byers said, "These fabulous results are just reward for the hard work of the students over the last two years and for the support they have received from their teachers and parents".

We are particularly pleased because this is the first year that new, more challenging, A Levels have been examined. The school is reflecting positively on the decisions we took two years ago to respond to the introduction of these new A Levels. The students have benefitted from spending more time on fewer subjects and from our decision to scrap AS Levels in Year 12. Our students will now move on to a variety of university courses, apprenticeships and gap years with confidence following their hard work and success and we wish them a bright and successful future.
