2018/19 Results

In 2017 there was a major shift in the key stage 4 curriculum that was studied in England.  It was the first year that the majority of new more challenging GCSEs were assessed.  Since then we have been pleased with our progress within these new GCSEs and our attainment has risen across many key attainment measures over this time.
