“I would like to say a huge thank you to our parents who support the students and the school.

“Our students have produced a fantastic set of results, despite changes introduced to make the exams more challenging.

“Some of our students took 28 exams.

“These GCSE results come hard on the heel of last week’s strong A-level results, which saw almost all students gaining a place at university or apprenticeship of their choice.”
