Congratulations all round for this year's GCSE results.

Our Yr 11 pupils have obtained an excellent set of results this year. The first cohort to sit public examinations in three years, they completed their GCSE courses during a turbulent 24 months, contending with lockdown learning, covid restrictions and shifting grade boundaries as the national system adjusts grading back to pre-lockdown years. Managing to keep on top of studying for 10, and in some cases 11 GCSEs is no small feat but our students showed great determination and characteristic good humour. Along with the excellent overall grades are numerous individual stories of pupils overcoming adversity to achieve personal successes: triumphs which give everyone here deep satisfaction.

Our pupils have worked hard with the support of their teachers and parents to achieve these excellent results. We look forward to welcoming them back in September.

Headmaster, Mr Damian King
