We were thrilled to see 14 of our students achieve the top grade 9 in English Literature, 26% of students achieved top grades 9-7 in Maths and 81% achieved a grade 9-4 in English. 21 grade 9s were achieved in the new more rigorous Science GCSEs while 80% of students achieved a grade 9-4 in a Modern Foreign Language.
