Exam Results

Statement following our 2021 GCSE results:

Despite a hugely challenging year, the resilience and tenacity of the Y11 students complemented by the incredible support of experienced and passionate teachers has yielded one of the best set of GCSE results seen over several years. We are delighted that all our Centre Assessed Grades have been awarded to our students. This is a testament to the hard work of the staff in ensuring that all CAGs were decided in a professional and honest way using abrange of students' work.

For the first time since the introduction of the new grading system and headline measures, we are proud to announce that our GCSE students scored an A8 figure of 6.1, implying that our students were averaging a grade 6 in their subjects.  This continues the past 3 year upward trend seen for this measure. Another exceptional achievement is 39% of all grades achieved were grades 7 and above.
