Following last week’s success at A-level, students in Year 11 have responded in kind and by achieving the best GCSE results in years.
Fifty per cent of students achieved the gold standard of five A*–C grades including English and maths, and over 90 students achieved five A*-C or better overall.
Particularly notable performers at the Potters Bar school were Lorraine Aldridge, Nicole Bissett, Billy Campbell-Lendrum, Nicola Hajittofis, Jack Hetherington, Dan Ionta, Matthew Mcardle, Hayden Stone and Jake Trounce, who all achieved six or more A*-A grades.
Headteacher Peter Baker said: “This is yet another great set of figures, equalling the fantastic results in 2010, with more demanding GCSE exams than ever before.
“Worthy of a special mention are two students, Jack and Dan, who had a clean sweep of all A*-A grades in this summer’s exams.”
