  • Providing opportunities to develop socially responsible pupils
  • Encouraging pupils to be self-aware, resilient and to celebrate their individuality
  • Motivating pupils to recognise the local, national and international context of their own education

A Level Results

An excellent set of A Level results has enabled a large proportion of this year's leavers to secure places at their university of choice in their chosen field of study, with over 35% of passes at A*/A, compared to the UK average of 25%.

GCSE Results

The School is delighted to celebrate the excellent performance of their pupils in their GCSE examinations. With 57% of passes at grades 9 to 7 (A*/A equivalent), and 78% at grades 9 to 6 (A* to B equivalent), this year's cohort has risen to the challenge with great success; 12 pupils are to be particularly commended for achieving nine or more grades 8 or 9 (A* equivalent) and over a third of all passes were at these two top grades.
