Today is your day and you should feel very proud indeed. Good luck in your future endeavours. You deserve it."Mr G. Bourgade
The way the UK measures secondary school performance is changing. The Department for Education has created a short video explaining more.

We are very proud of the achievements of all our students; it is always a privilege to share in their celebrations on results day, a testament to the hard work of both students and staff. We wish them all good luck in their new ventures and much happiness for the future.
Congratulations also go to our Year 10 students, some of whom took a GCSE in Statistics with 94.3% achieving an A*-C grade. A fantastic 49.1% of the boys achieved an A*-A grade which at 26 boys is far too many to mention here! We must however mention the 5 boys that achieved an A*grade, Sam Cooper, Nathan Crewe, Ben Harvey, Sam Johnson and Vlad Ungureanu. A fantastic achievement by all the boys, who completed this course in only 1 year within their normal maths lessons.
These impressive results achieved by the boys, are an excellent start to their GCSE courses. Well done boys and staff!
