This included the proportion of 9-7 grades and the percentage of pupils who achieved 9-5 in both English and Maths.

“I am pleased that the system has trusted the judgement of the teachers who know the students so well and worked so hard to prepare the students for their GCSEs,” he said.

“The results reflect the hard work of everyone at the school and the rapid improvements we have made over the last couple of years.

“Most students will be returning to study in our sixth form, but these results will allow all of our students to confidently move onto their next stage wherever that is.”
