The students have worked hard to achieve results like these. They have had to work to more challenging courses in English and Maths and we are delighted to see that their performance in these qualifications is still excellent.
The teaching staff have continued to provide students with the highest quality teaching and examination preparation despite not having a great deal of information upon which to base their work. It was very impressive to see so many students achieve the new highest level of a 9.
Henrietta Miles, Assistant Principal KS 4 said: "I am so pleased that these results will allow students to access the courses they have planned for the next academic year. It is very important to the Key Stage 4 Team that all students are supported so that they can achieve their best and these results show that many students did just that."
Ben Findel-Hawkins, Head of Year 11, said: " Students are under so much pressure to achieve with these new qualifications it was very important that we remained positive for the students so that they could work hard on their preparation for the exams. The students found the new courses challenging but their determination to succeed has shone through with so many students doing extremely well."
Principal, Mr Alexander, said," I am really proud of these results which reflect the hard work of the students and the dedication and commitment of the staff. These new courses were demanding and the hours of extra work put in on Saturdays and during holiday periods are a tribute to students and staff alike. Results at both GCSE and A Level have been highly pleasing and an excellent prelude to my retirement. I wish all the students the best of fortune.”
