We are enormously proud of our students and the staff who have worked so hard to support them throughout this last academic year.
We set ourselves the target of 65% of our students passing both English and maths, ensuring that all students make good progress with us. We secured 66% and are delighted that many of our students went on to exceed these targets with even higher grades. Our students and staff really rose to the challenge of the new grading system, proven by the record number of students in the school's history to achieve the best grades; 29 grade 9s were awarded, and 22% of grades were at a level 7 or higher. This is a real testament to the work undertaken this year in providing real challenge and intellectual rigour for our students, regardless of starting points.
We look forward this next year to building further on this success. In the meantime, we congratulate all of our students and staff on a fantastic achievement.
