The school has seen a significant increase in the overall pass rate and the average A-Level grade has gone up to a grade B, which will place the school’s Sixth Form amongst the highest performing in the whole of the County. 99% of all academic entries at A-Level were graded A* - E, with 1 one in 5 grades being a grade A* or A – a wonderful achievement!

Acting Headteacher, Mrs Louise McKie commented, “We have seen some outstanding academic results this year and a further improvement on last year. This is due to the hard work and commitment shown by students and staff, as well as the support of parents, all working in partnership towards shared goals. I would like to congratulate and thank everyone who has helped to contribute to our success.
I am delighted that the vast majority of students wishing to progress to the next tier of education have been successful in gaining a place on a course of their initial choice, many at Russell Group universities. I am confident that, by the start of next week, all will be placed. This is a real success. Well done to all.”
