This has been an excellent year and the results are a testament to the students and staff who have devoted hard work and effort to their studies. The boys have been focused and willing to put effort into revision and they have been rewarded as a consequence. In every one of our key measures of performance, we have achieved or exceeded our targets for this cohort. 83% of our students achieved A*-C grades (or equivalent in the reformed GCSEs) in at least five of their subjects. In the Gold standard (that is 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths) our performance was 72%. For a school that does not select its students on entry, based upon their academic ability, these figures are brilliant.
On behalf of all the staff I congratulate the boys on their success and wish them well in the future.
Mr J Turner
