Dr James Pullé, Headteacher said "Throughout their five years in the school, the class of 2015 have demonstrated a dedication to learning, a commitment to the values of respect and courtesy and an impressive sense of the importance of community spirit. Their recent Year 11 Prom was a fitting celebration of these qualities and today the students have been rewarded with a very impressive set of GCSE results.
"They should be very proud of their collective achievement in increasing the percentage of our students achieving 5+ A*-C GCSEs (or equivalent) including English and maths GCSEs to almost 16% points above the 2014 national average.
"They should also be very proud of their individual achievements; these provide them with strong foundations on which to build during the next stage of their education or training, whether that be in the school sixth form, at college or in an apprenticeship.
"As well as congratulating students on their examination results I would like to pay tribute to the contribution they have made to the life of the school in sport, outdoor pursuits, public speaking, music, drama, dance, art and the many other areas of achievement and creativity in which they have excelled over the last five years. I have no doubt that these memorable experiences, made possible by our belief in providing a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum, will prove most valuable in future years.
"Of course none of this would have been possible without the support of parents, carers and school staff, and I am sure that the students would be keen to join me in expressing thanks to all those who have helped them on their journey."
