Exam Results 2017

I want to congratulate the pupils, staff and parents for the excellent examination results achieved this year. 

The new GCSEs were introduced in English and Maths with a Grade 4 equivalent to a Grade C last year. Despite all the changes, both the English and Maths department improved on last year’s results and a number of these pupils achieved the top grade 9 in English and Maths. There were a number of outstanding performing departments, which include: Science, Expressive Arts, Art, RE, Food and IT.

Below is a table with the highlights from the 2017 Exam results.
