Congratulations also go to our Year 10 students, our first cohort to sit the new GCSE in Statistics with 96.8% achieving a grade 4+ and 87.3% a 5+. A fantastic 42.9% of the boys achieved a 7+, which at 26 boys is far too many to mention here! We must however mention the 2 boys, Sam Lee and Chris Rolfe who achieved the new grade 9 and a further 9 boys, Charlie Blott, Fraser Cooke, Sven Grutters, Joe Mosson, Mikey O'Neill, Nathaniel Pye, Jamie Shaw, Jack Swain and Will Thompson achieved grade 8. This is a pleasing set of results, particularly as the boys prepare for these exams during their normal maths lessons.
These impressive results are an excellent start by the boys to their GCSE courses. Well done boys and staff!
