Sixth Form Results 2014
We are delighted to report that our Sixth Formers have achieved a really impressive set of A-level results building on the strong performance of last year. Particularly pleasing was a 30% rise in the proportion of students passing 3 or more A-levels with 12% of our students achieving at least two grade As and a grade B, enabling them access to the best universities in the country. Some particularly impressive individual performances include:
Jeffery Pei: A*, A*, A*, A*
Eden Scott: A*, A*, A
Liam Spencer: A*, A*, A
Rachel Dawson: A*, A, A
We wish all our Sixth Form students success with their continuing studies and thank our staff for their hard work and commitment to ensuring that every student achieves their very best.

Year 11 have now received their GCSE results and we are very pleased to report that the proportion of students achieving five or more GCSE pass grades has increased to 95%.
Despite the challenging national picture, we are proud that our English results have risen significantly with 69% of our students achieving A*-C and an impressive 76% making expected progress. These results reflect the hard work and commitment to high standards of all our students and staff, recognised by Ofsted during our recent “good” inspection, and are an important step towards becoming an outstanding school.
