Once again we are delighted with this year’s achievements with a 99% pass rate in all subjects and over a half of all the grades achieved were at A*/A or Distinction*/Distinction. There have been many strong individual performances across the ability range and the vast majority of students have been accepted onto a university course of their choice or achieved the grades they needed for their chosen career. The results are a reflection of the hard work and commitment of students and staff underpinned by great support from parents. We would like to congratulate all our students and offer them our very best wishes for the future.
