Headteacher Philip Shackleton said “I am so proud of every one of our students. This year saw nearly a full suite of reformed GCSEs (1-9) and for our students to achieve as highly as they have is testament to their hard work and commitment to their studies. These results are also testament to the hard work of each and every one of my colleagues, who continue to go above and beyond for our students. I would like to wish all of our students the very best in the next steps in their education.”
