The school is “really pleased” with its results in maths this year. 82pc of students achieved a grade 4 pass or above which is 11pc above national performance in 2018. 63pc of students achieved a strong pass at grade 5 or above. 26pc of students achieved 9-7 grades.
Over a third of students achieved grades 9-7 in science, humanities and modern foreign languages.
Headteacher Sarah Creasey said: “Results have been consistently strong across all subjects which is testament to the resilience and determined efforts of students who sat more than 20 different examination papers in the summer and also to their dedicated teachers who once again have gone the extra mile to ensure that students secure these really excellent results.
