The 5+ A*-C pass rate was 68% with the pass rate including English and maths being 55%. The percentage of A*/A grades was 23% and almost half of all GCSE grades were A*-B grades. Ten students have achieved 9 or more A*/A grades, which represents 13% of the year group. Chloe Jablonski with 5 A* and 5 A grades, Ellie Pitts with 8 A* and 3 A grades and Eben Pirie with 6 A* and 5 A grades were amongst the highest achieving students.

Progress levels are exceptional this year with a value added score of 1027 and excellent levels of progress in both maths and English.

These results, in terms of progress and achievement, are the best that the school has ever had. The proportion of A*/A grades achieved, with almost 1 in 4 examination entries being at this level, is outstanding. This reflects the hard work and effort from students and staff over the previous two years.
