The school celebrates record GCSE results this year with over half of all grades (58%) being 9 – 7, the old A* – A. The school achieved a 90% pass rate across the board. Nearly half of all subjects achieved 100% grade 7 or above. Mrs Robinson expressed her delight at the results,“I am so pleased that this year group has been so successful, they worked extremely hard and have been an outstanding year group to teach. On days like this, I am humbled when I see a group of young people moving onto their next step confidently, independently and with a ‘can-do’ attitude. We have not only provided the platform for the pupils to achieve academically but they are well rounded people able to deal with whatever life will challenge them with.”
She went on to say: “Everyone, students and staff, deserves congratulations for their commitment and energy as they worked together towards the GCSEs. It was fantastic seeing students, staff and parents at school this morning sharing this success. I wish everyone the best of luck as they move onto some exciting opportunities in a range of 6thform settings.
The science department were delighted that 100% of all grades in Biology, Chemistry and Physics were 9 – 8, which means that last year everybody would have been awarded A*. 100% of Geography, Computer Science, German and PE students were grade 9 to 7 (A to A*).
Some of the individual stories were particularly pleasing. Raoul Parekh achieved 5 grade 9’s showing that hard work and dedication does pay off. His results were particularly impressive as he managed this as well as being Head of Sport and a host of other extra curriculum activities.
It has been an honour to play a part in these young people’s education and we share great pride in their achievements. I would like to thank all those who were involved in supporting these students to achieve their potential and in many cases, beyond”
