Congratulations to all of our year 11 students who have worked so hard and been so successful in your summer exams this year. This has been a tough year for students with new and tougher exams in English and Maths and a new grading system to get used to.
We could not be more pleased with your results with 73% of students attaining a grade 9 – 4 (the old A* – C) in either English language or literature and 70 % attaining the same grades in Maths. There have been some exceptional performances with ten students gaining the very top grade “9” in a variety of subjects and 21 students gaining grades “8/9” or the equivalent across all or nearly all of their subjects.
There is a guide to the new grading system on our website for parents – please read this to make sense of the new grades. Students in our sixth form also did exceptionally well this year and we look forward to enrolling new students to our sixth form either on Friday morning at 9.30am or at the start of the new term. Congratulations once again and we could not be more proud of all of our students.
