English Language and Literature saw grades of A* - B, 100% and 97% respectively. The Science results were also particularly strong. Almost every student achieved A* - B in all three Sciences and in Physics 92% achieved A* - A. The School’s Maths Department has achieved exceptional results for several years now and this year was no exception with 93% attaining a B grade and above.
The grades in the option subjects were also incredibly strong. In Music, every student achieved an A* or an A and in History nearly 80% of the candidates scored an A* or A.

Headmaster Richard Bool said, “I am delighted with the results. They are a very bright hard-working year group and they thoroughly deserve their success. Whilst I am happy that so many achieved brilliant grades, I am even more pleased that so many met or exceeded their potential. I am confident that they will rise to the challenges of the Sixth Form and I look forward to watching their progress.”
