After an incredibly challenging two years our Year 11 students have achieved fantastic results in their GCSEs. We are tremendously proud of how our young people have applied themselves - staying attentive, determined and demonstrating resilience through these most difficult of times.
Of the 2051 entries, 80% achieved grades 9 – 4 with over 20% of students being awarded the highest grades of a 9 or 8. In English and Maths, 73% achieved grades 4+ at both GCSEs with 59% at 5+.
Headteacher Zehra Jaffer said:
Huge congratulations to our brilliant Year 11 students who have undertaken these assessments during such unprecedented times. We are proud of each and every one of you! Despite the disruption to their education, our students have remained focused and committed to their studies, yielding praiseworthy results. Not only are they all equipped with excellent academic qualifications, but they have grown and developed into wonderful, compassionate and wise young people who are a credit to the school, their families and our community.
