We would like to congratulate all of our students on their results this summer. These results are the best in the school's history with an amazing 50% of all entries graded A* or A (or equivalent). 71% of all entries were graded A*-B. The percentage of A* grades at A Level doubled this year.

There were many outstanding individual performances and the school is delighted that four students will be going on to study at Oxford or Cambridge with a further eight taking up courses in medicine or dentistry.

In Sports Science, every student achieved a Distinction* and in A Level Economics, every student achieved an A* or A grade.

Head of School Andy Byers said, "These fabulous results are just reward for the hard work of the students over the last two years and for the support they have received from their teachers and parents".

APS is calculated using all of the student’s GCSE subjects and is based on predicted grades. As students go through Year 11 this has the potential to change. Guidance and support will be provided on entry requirements to the Sixth Form during the next academic year.

Please see below for details of support available from the Exam and Curriculum Offices, school start dates and careers/further education advice.

  • Year 11 results can be collected by the student at 9am on Thursday 24 August 2017 from the Winter Gardens (if alternative arrangements for issuing the results are required, an alternative issue form should have been completed by 11 July 2017: we cannot guarantee an alternative issue of results for forms received after this date).
  • The Exams Office will be open Friday 25 August and Tuesday 29 August to Thursday 31 August 9am – 12:30pm to support you.
