Welcome

welcome 

We're pleased to announce another set of strong GCSE and A Level results this year, maintaining our position as one of the highest performing schools in the county. After a challenging 18 months, many students have still managed to attain top A Level grades (A*) in one or more subject. More than 75% of students are on track to secure their first choice place at the top universities.

Almost three quarters of the grades students were awarded were A* - B and provisional projections suggest at least 50% of those applying to higher education will progress to a Russell Group university. There was also significant achievement in BTEC and CTEC studies, with 100% of students achieving distinction* or distinction.

Our GCSE results also show a continued upward trend in outcomes at the college. Many students gained top grades in one or more subjects: 34 shared a total of 71 grade 9s, an increase on last year.
