Mark Anstiss, Headteacher, commented, ‘We are very proud of all our students’ achievements today.  Obtaining these results takes hard work, the new GCSEs are very demanding with more exams and greater pressure on the students, these results are down to the perseverance and commitment of both the students and the teachers.  

These great results provide our students with an opportunity to access our academic 6th form and provide a firm foundation for university or work in the future.  Staff and students have worked unbelievably hard.  I would also like to thank our parents and the school Governors for their support and commitment to our school.

In a time of real turbulence in the examination system, with a very wide range of qualifications being taken, it is very pleasing that our students have done so well.’
