This year’s results at GCSE are extremely pleasing. The percentage achieving 5A* – C including English and Maths rose by 9% to 74%. These are the best GCSE results on record at the College.
The students have worked very hard and need to be congratulated for their dedication over the Key Stage. The core subjects did very well and special mention should go to Mathematics that jumped 11% to 83% A* – C. English maintained its high standards, rising 2% with 86% achieving A* – C. Those achieving A* – C in two Sciences also rose by 46% to 78%.
There were many outstanding individual results amongst the students and they all deserve to be congratulated on the effort they put into their studies over the two years of the Key Stage. We are grateful for the dedication of the staff of the College who worked tirelessly to ensure the students met and exceeded their target grades and we would like to thank parents and carers for the support they have given to their sons throughout the year.
We look forward to welcoming the students back to the Sixth Form to begin the next stage of their academic careers.
