'a good school with many outstanding features’

Striving for Success.

We are really proud of the fact that last year 47% of students left with 5 A*-C (E&M) and our A level students place us in the top 10% of schools nationally. Both sets of results place us above the national average for progress during their time with us. In our recent exams it is clear that students are working really hard to gain excellent results. I even see students working on Saturday mornings to get the very highest grades.

We are also pleased to see so many students receiving offers to the top universities for this year.

One thing is certain we will continue to provide a curriculum and experience that is broad, balanced, challenging and, importantly,  right for our students and their future aspirations.
