Head Teacher’s Message

Dear Parents/Carers

I am delighted to report that the students achieved 73% 5 or more A*-C including English and Mathematics in 2016. The national figure for 2015 was 56%.

The results are due to the hard work, determination and perseverance of the students who once again have been skilfully supported by an outstanding team of teaching and non-teaching staff who once again have “gone the extra mile” to ensure that barriers to learning, both academically and pastorally, have been successfully broken down to ensure that all pupils achieved their optimum potential via a personalised learning platform.

The students and the staff at the school have been admirably supported by their parents and the Governing Body of the school who between them have ensured that the students have had the environment at home and at school in which to thrive.

With reports in the national and local media of a national downward trend this makes this year’s achievements more notable and I have every confidence that yet again we will find ourselves ranked as one of the top performing schools.

A breakdown of this year’s results are as follows:
