All students have been sent a copy of the ‘Information for Students Returning to School’ leaflet, together with their timetable and a year group badge. Please click here for a copy of the leaflet.
Today our Year 11 students have collected an excellent set of GCSE results that reflect the hard work and focus that they committed to their studies. As a cohort, they have shown strength of character, resilience and maturity in handling the cancellation of examinations and school closure. We could not be any prouder of them.
81% of students achieved a grade 4 or above in English and maths and there have been so many individual success stories across all subjects.
It has been a pleasure to celebrate results today with students, safe in the knowledge that they have the results they need for their next steps.

Well done to all students on their examination results. We are delighted that 70% of students in Year 11 achieved grade 4 or above in both English and maths; an increase of 4% from last year. There are so many individual success stories and it was fantastic to see the smiling faces of students who opened up their envelopes and saw that their hard work had paid off. They can now confidently access their next steps in post-16 education or training.
We are proud of all of our students who worked incredibly hard at a difficult time for us. Headteacher, Dr Letman, who sadly died a few weeks before the exams started, had every confidence in the year group and he would have enjoyed celebrating with the students.
