  • There was an average of 10.26 passes per pupil at A* to C grades.
  • The deputy headteacher, Dr Andrew Edwards said “Our initial analysis of this year’s results shows that they stand up very well against previous years. We are delighted with the overall success for the students and it is a reflection of the dedication and hard work that is brought to the partnership by both the students and the staff. Some of our performance measures show that this year group has exceeded records set last year. For instance, the number of students gaining straight grade As and A*s is up 50% on last year. 53% of our grades are grade A or better and 83% are grade B or better. We look forward now to welcoming many of these and other students into our new A level intake and working with them over the next two years to produce results to match those that we achieved last week”.
