The most successful subjects were: the Arts, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, French, Religious Studies, Drama, History, and Maths.
Better than I hoped
Headteacher Donna London-Hill said: ‘We are thrilled with these results. They are a testament to the hard work of our students and staff who together have achieved these high outcomes. We all know that the past few years have been tough, but the resilience and determination shown by our young people has been brilliant, and it goes to show that hard work pays off.
The students were relieved and delighted with the results and it was lovely to see so many happy faces. It means that they are able to move on to their next steps, which is great.’
The students were equally delighted with their results. One commented; ‘I am so relieved’, while another reported that ‘these are better than I could have hoped’.
Lots of students were keen to thank their teachers for the support and guidance that they had been offered for the duration of their courses, proving that education is very much a partnership. The school is very proud of the outcomes today and would like to wish every student a very happy and fulfilling future.
