I am delighted with the performance of the boys who have worked very hard to achieve their grades. These are the best set of results, according to our key benchmarks, achieved in the last five years. 24% of all the grades gained are in the A* and A range and 78% are in the A*- C range. At De La Salle we take boys of all abilities. I would like to congratulate all the boys who achieved their personal bests and many of whom exceeded them. IN the statistical rush to celebrate the A* and A grades we must not lose sight of those boys who in gaining a grade C or D achieved beyond the performance predicted from their CAT scores and GCSE grades. Every student who did his best should be celebrating today.
