EXAMINATION RESULTS 2016
We have had an outstanding summer as regards our examination results, and our candidates have distinguished themselves from Year 9 up to Year 13, giving the school its best ever results.
Our 2016 Sixth Form results confirm our place as one of the highest achieving schools in the locality. 25% of our results were awarded at the top grades of A* or A, 50% at A*, A or B and, most importantly, over 94% achieved a university place of their choice, including Oxbridge, London, Durham, York and Edinburgh.
Our ‘Level 3 Value Added’ measure puts the school in line with the national picture.

Year 10 took one, two or three GCSEs in a combination of Science, Statistics and Philosophy and Ethics. Across the three subjects they achieved an impressive 75% at A* to C, with 25% of results at A* or A. With their Year 9 option from 2015, there are many starting Year 11 with as many as four GCSEs at A* to C.
Year 9 also distinguished themselves in their GCSE option achieving 64% at A* to C, with 17% of grades at A* and A.
We have very much enjoyed celebrating these results on our results days; it was lovely to see the joy across our families and across so many age groups. It has been a good year for the school, but none of the above has been achieved in isolation. These impressive results have been earned on a foundation of the partnership we have with our families and we are pleased to see its impact in the achievement of our young people.
