Boys bucking the trend

We’re extremely pleased with our results this year as our students have not only outperformed the national average in terms of the number of students achieving 4 or more GCSEs at grades 4 and above, but we have also exceeded last year’s results in almost all areas too. The changes to the GCSEs have made it a challenging year for students and teaching staff alike which makes our success even more pleasing.

In a reversal to previous years, and the national trend, our boys have performed slightly better than the girls in almost all subjects which we’re extremely proud of. It’s also brilliant to see all three sciences performing so well, and more than 1/5 of students achieving grade 7 or above in maths.
