The Principal Reports......

The Principal ReportsStudents in last year’s Year 11, 12 and 13 are all celebrating stunning achievements in this summer’s exams. The combined results represents the school’s best ever outcomes.
At GCSE, despite the many significant changes to the performance tables and an overall decline nationally, we had record results. 67% of students achieved 5 A*-C grades, including English and Maths, up 3% from this point last year. Outcomes in English and Maths were once again exceptional. 85% of students achieved at least a C grade in English Literature and 79% in English Language. For the second year running in Maths 50 students gained either an A or A* grade, a feat also matched by English Literature this year. Last year the school was praised by David Laws, Minister for Schools, for the level of progress made by students and it is pleasing to see this progress has been maintained.
In Year 13 the A Level pass rate was over 99% for the fifth year running. 80% of all A Level grades were at grade C or higher and there was a 10% increase in those achieving the highest grades. At BTEC there was a 100% pass rate with 85% of grades at either Distinction of Distinction*.
Once again there were many outstanding individual results with the vast majority of students having achieved their first choice place at university. Amongst the highest achievers were Lisa Quick (A* in Business Studies and Law, an A in Media Studies and a B in English Language); Nathan Moss (A in Physics and Chemistry and B in Maths and Biology); Daniel Fairbanks (A in Maths, Physics & PE plus a C in English Literature); Alice Rendall (A in Law & English Literature along with a B in Maths & Chemistry ); Amy Hodge (B in Physics and Biology and C in Maths and Chemistry); Sophie Takooree (A* in Business Studies and Drama and A in English Literature); Courtney Day (A in Textiles and Drama and B in English Literature); Sarah Jakobsons-Tabis (A in English Language and Photography and B in Psychology); Lucy Fillingham (A* in Business Studies, B in Law and C in Photography); Joshua Jarrett (A* in Business Studies, B in ICT and C in Photography) and Tom Moodey (A in Drama and B in English Literature and PE).
At AS level Year 12 students achieved the school’s best ever results building on their achievement last year at GCSE.
Congratulations to all of you who sat your exams this summer and to your teachers for the tremendous support they have given you to achieve these outcomes.
