Examination Results 2018

KS4 GCSE Results 2018
Congratulations to all our year 11 students who received their GCSE results in August 2018. We are proud of your continued hard work and perseverance which has led to some truly outstanding results.
This year brought the first set of results from the new style GCSEs in most subjects, following the transition in English and Maths in 2017. As well as a new grading system, these examinations were designed to be more rigorous in their assessments, making it more of a challenge for pupils to achieve the top grades (8/9 being equivalent to an A* or above)
We are delighted to share some of our highlights, and are particularly proud of how the pupils have coped with the changes and performed exceptionally. There are a number of notable increases since 2017 which shows our continuing trend of going from strength to strength.
