Our Year 11 students and staff are celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results. In a year of change, with significantly more challenging GCSEs and a new grading system in maths and English, we are delighted to report that we have matched our record breaking performance of last year.

80% of students achieved the new 9-4 grades in English AND Maths, matching the equivalent percentage of A*-C from last year.

There were many outstanding individual performances and we are delighted that so many students will progress on to study A Level and vocational courses in our Sixth Form which, indications following last week's results appear to show, is the best performing state school Sixth Form in the whole North East.
