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".

Mrs Bevan has sent through some photos of the German Exchange group: outside the Reichstag Building, where they had a talk and visit to the glass dome, at the Brandenburg Gate, at the Dr Oetker factory, and on their joint trip to Osnabruck, which included a tour of the historical sights. The group also met the mayor of Steinhagen; the news article and photo below appeared in two local newspapers.

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.
