Congratulations, Class of 2023!

It’s been another great day in school today, with Year 11 students collecting GCSE results and doing themselves and their families proud.
As was the case for Year 13 students last week, the impact of Covid and other factors means that this Year 11 cohort have had to face far more than their fair share of challenges in tackling their GCSE courses. However, they too have come through extremely strongly and can be exceptionally proud of their efforts.

Mrs Feast, Deputy Headteacher, said:

“I am incredibly proud of our Year 11 students and the outcomes that they have achieved. Sharing in celebrations with them this morning has been wonderful! They have been a real pleasure to work with and I wish them all the very best with their next steps.”

Mr Williams, Headteacher, said:

“Watching students opening envelopes this morning has been joyous. The resilience they have shown over the past few years to get to this point has been remarkable, but it’s been a lot more than that; this cohort has been an especially good humoured, well-mannered and well-rounded group of young people. We have enjoyed working with them immensely and couldn’t be more confident that they will go on to be great successes in whatever they do. The large majority will be staying with us for the 6th form and we look forward to seeing them again soon; to everybody else, we wish them all the very best of luck for the future.”

Congratulations, Class of 2023: best ever results!

After a long, nervous wait over the summer, Year 13 students were finally able to open exam results this morning… and they have done exceptionally well! In fact, these are the best set of post-16 results the school has ever had.

Mrs Jennings, Head of Sixth Form, said:

“I’m absolutely over the moon for the students. This is the cohort who didn’t sit GCSE exams because of Covid, which means they missed out on the benefit of the experience of sitting public exams – so the whole process has been even more nerve-wracking than normal. I am so proud of the way they have handled everything and just delighted to see them doing so well.”
