There were some exceptional individual performances with 10 per cent of the cohort achieving seven or more passes at grades 7, 8 or 9. This is all the more noteworthy given the recent reforms to the GCSE curriculum and the significantly more challenging examinations. Moreover, 22 per cent of all grades awarded were 7 or higher.

Headteacher Edward Rodriguez said: “I would like to congratulate all students and staff on their hard work and commitment. They have responded so well to the challenges of the newly reformed GCSEs. These exceptional results are a testament to their enthusiasm and perseverance.”
