    Examinations & Results

    We were delighted with our Summer 2018 examinations results which are summarised in more detail in the ‘GCSE results 2018’ link below.

    The students had to contend with all the changes and demands of the new GCSE syllabuses and the results achieved in just 3 days of academic study per week are testament to the tremendous hard work of the students and staff.

    98% of Year 11 students achieved 5 or more 9-4 / A*-C passes in any subjects

    80% of Year 11 students achieved 5 or more 9-4 / A*-C passes including English and Maths

    49% of Year 11 students achieved 10 or more 9-4 / A*-C passes in any subjects

    39% of all Year 11 entries were graded 9-7/A*-A

    Average no. of 9-4 / A*-C grades per student = 8.6
