Examination Results

Once again we are celebrating the success of our Year 11 leavers. This year we have seen that our students have maintained high standards but there was improvement in attainment in a number of subjects across the school. The Teacher Assessed Grades process was used to decide the outcomes for our 2021 Leavers.  We are proud of the academic resilience they demonstrated across the mini-tests and assessments which formed their evidence base in each qualification.

We have seen students achieving highly in much more challenging GCSE 9-1 qualifications. As always we have a number of students who have achieved despite the adversity they have faced and we are very proud of them. As a specialist STEM College we continue to be proud of the superb outcomes for our young people in Science and these are well supported from other subjects across the curriculum.
