We are very proud of our Year 11 students in their results and delighted to share in their success. A quarter of all grades in English and maths were awarded at the highest levels of 7-9 – equivalent to A* and A grades in the new more challenging examination system. The vast majority of subjects smashed national attainment levels, with Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Drama, Art and German seeing some of the highest pass rates and significant numbers attaining in the top 15%.

It is evident that the effort from all involved has assisted our students as they head off to further education, training and employment, supported by staff to ensure they access their preferred pathway. The school looks forward to continuing to support many of our students who are progressing to our sixth form.

Congratulations also to our Year 13 students on collecting their results and achieving greatly. Our students have set themselves on a pathway to further education accessing a wide range of courses at various universities for example  University of Liverpool - Veterinary Science, Newcastle University- History and Manchester Metropolitan University- Fashion Art Direction and some students progressing into employment. The hard work applied paid off as 70% of all A Levels were awarded at A*-C, the students achieved 100% pass rate for BTECs and 51% of our students gained at least one A*-B Grade.
