63 students gained 9 or more A*s and 85 students gained 8 or more A*s which is more than half the year group.

Head, David Goodhew says: “My warmest congratulations to Year 11 on their spectacular GCSE results – over 1000 A* grades!
" I am so pleased for the pupils, who have worked hard to do so well, and their teachers, who have inspired and cared for them.
" This academic success is a fitting companion to their accomplishments throughout the year in sport, music, drama and art. I am excited to see what they will go on to achieve in the Sixth Form, and beyond!"
