September 2018: Congratulations Year 11!

Congratulations to all our Year 11 students on achieving a fantastic set of exam results – we are so proud of each and every one of you. The following gives a flavour of some of your achievements, undoubtedly the result of a huge amount of hard work from both staff and students, along with the support of family and friends:

  • 187 grade 9 or A* grades were achieved by our students, including 59 grade 9s, the demanding new measure introduced in the new grading system across almost all GCSE subjects this year.
  • Great results this year in GCSE English and Maths, with 89% of Year 11 gaining a standard pass (grade 4 or better) in English and 77% in Maths.
  • Over three quarters of all students achieved at least a grade 4 in both English and Maths, equalling last year’s brilliant performance and well above last year’s national average of 64%.
  • 25% of students gained grade 5 or above in every subject they studied.
  • 39 students, over 15% of the year group, achieved grade 7, 8 or 9 in eight subjects or more.
  • Over a quarter of all students achieved 3 or more grades 7,8 or 9.
  • 75% of students gained a strong pass (grade 5 or better) in English this year, against a national average of 61% last year – well done to all 201 students!

We look forward to welcoming so many of you into our Sixth Form in September, but whatever your plans for the future, we wish you every success!
