Head teacher Mr Andrew Fulbrook said “I continue to be delighted with our A-Level results at this time of national concern over the new ‘tougher’ examinations with more of a focus on final examination performance and the results not including AS marks.

“Our students have worked incredibly hard to achieve this very high standard. They continue to be very well supported by our dedicated staff and Sixth Form Team.”

He said they were particularly pleased with the record breaking school results at A*-A and of the fact 46% of grades were A*-B, an increase of 6% over last year.

“In particular we are proud to have increased our fantastically high overall pass rate with 99% of all grades being A Level passes. We have been extremely successful in Music and Polish achieving 100% A*-B grades,” said Mr Fulbrook.
