Headteacher at the school, Jonathan Britton, said: “Once again, the results our pupils have achieved will ensure the school is ranked as one of the highest performing schools in the region and the country.

“Results such as these are only possible due to the combination of determination and commitment of pupils, dedication of staff in delivering high quality teaching and the support of parents to ensure our young people are cared for, supported and challenged to do their very best. It is this partnership that enables our children to excel in their studies.”

Amanda Longstaff, head of upper school, said: “I am immensely proud of my Year Group and their results.

“They have been a wonderful group of young people to work with from Year 7 and I am delighted that they have done so well.

“There are some fantastic individual successes with pupils achieving grades of 9s and 8s (equivalent to A*) which reveal their dedication to their studies, and they have rightly reaped their just rewards; I am so happy to celebrate with them.

“These pupils should be rightly proud of their achievements and I know that their determination to succeed will be a valuable lesson for life.”
