GCSE Results and Diary Dates

5 x A*-C (English and Maths):  60% Gold Standard

5 x A*-C overall:  70%

5 x A*-G:  94%

 These are just the best results, with an 13% rise on last year, which we fully expected.  This success will be the norm as our core subjects are strong with A*-C in Maths 67% and English 72%.

We have traditional values offering academic subjects to all our students and with no i-GCSEs too!  The GCSE results are a springboard for our students into whatever career paths they wish to take next.  I am absolutely delighted for them and for their families too.

Notable subject successes with good value added include Sport, German, Engineering, Religious Studies, Drama, Photography and Computing.

Our Value Added score indicates these results are unmistakably ‘above average’ and this clearly illustrates our continued drive and commitment to providing a consistently ‘good’ education.  A good education involves opportunities for students to lead others, to be led by others, for opinions to be shared, valued and respected and artistic and sporting experiences, such as “We Will Rock You” and Sports Days.

It has been a very successful year with ‘A’ level A*-C at 70% and GCSE A*-C (English and Maths) at 60%.

Praise goes to the teachers, support colleagues, and all middle and senior leaders for providing the challenge and support.  Special thanks to Sally Porter for leading the Governors so well, to last year’s Acting Deputy Head, Paul Short, and Scott Newstead for transforming our Science Faculty over the last three years.

I am very proud of everyone’s hard work and dedication, and proud to prove our school is as good as we have always known it to be.
