Class of 2018 Excels

Class of 2018 excels

This week, we celebrate the outstanding success of Class of 2018.  

The results are testament to the way that staff, students, parents and carers have worked together to achieve the very best outcomes.  We couldn’t be more proud. 

Despite the national changes that took place in the grading of GCSE subjects last year, the percentage of students achieving top grades has risen considerably and is hugely impressive.   As impressive is the excellent progress our students have made from their starting points, and it is likely our progress will end up exceeding of other students with similar starting points across most of the country.  The Class of 2018 has excelled, with strong and significant increases in all headline measures.  We are proud, not only of the outstanding results our students achieved, but of the way they achieved them. 

It is success that started in Year 7.  All our students embark on a journey of deep learning when they join us.  This is a journey of ambition, persistence, reflection, collaboration and creativity.  We are a school that is about the long-term: learning that will serve our students beyond the school gates, for the rest of their lives.  This journey is as important as the results achieved.  The Class of 2018 exemplifies this.   Their journey has been exemplary and it is wonderful that the vast majority will end their school careers with the qualifications they need to have choices and set up to pursue their dreams.  

Some of the many highlights include:

English Language:  77% achieved 4+ (C) ; 67% achieved 5+  (C/B) and 25% achieved above a Grade 7 (A*, A and above)
