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.
