Head Teacher Richard Bradford said -

'I am very proud of our students - they have been a fantastic year group who have worked incredibly hard and challenged themselves to do their very best.  I am delighted that students of all abilities are celebrating excellent personal academic achievements in their exams today.  I would like to thank the staff and parents who have done so much to support the students over the last few years.  I know that because of this support, the students have achieved much more than academic success and leave school well equipped to take on the challenges they will face in the years ahead. 

There were lots of individual successes.

Twins, Jago and Annie Sherred were celebrating after between them accumulating an amazing 17A*, 4A and 3B grades at GCSE as well as an A in FSMQ Additional Maths.   

Esme Madell was also one of over 60 students to achieve at least 8 A*-A grades at GCSE.  She achieved 9A* and 1A grades, a remarkable set of results as it was on average 3 grades per subject higher than the national average given her KS2 levels.
