Y13 students excelled themselves and met our high expectations, with nearly all Y13 students securing their first choice of university. 48% of all A Level entries were graded at A*-B and one in five entries attained an A* or A grade. Students studying vocational subjects also performed exceptionally well with 76% of all entries graded at a Distinction or above. We are incredibly PROUD of the achievements of our students and wish them well in the future studies at university.

At a time when the bar is being raised higher and higher I am delighted that our students are rising to the challenge and reaching their potential in the full range of academic and creative subjects. Individual students have performed exceptionally well with one student achieving 10 A* grades.
