There had been some uncertainty over this year’s results, since schools had been notified that grade boundaries would be returning to pre-Covid levels, despite the disruption suffered by this cohort during Key Stage 3.  With this in mind, we are extremely pleased with the school’s headline figures, which have shown a rise in the percentage of students gaining both a Grade 5 or better and a Grade 4 or better in English and Maths, when compared with 2019, the most recent year with similar exam standards.
We are also delighted with the outstanding achievements of individual students, many of whom exceeded their personal targets, made amazing progress or overcame particular barriers to secure great outcomes.  We are proud of all our young people for the tenacity and commitment they have shown, but worthy of particular mention are the following top performers:

Thomas Waller – 3 Grade 9s, 5 Grade 8s, 2 Grade 7s
Kobi Babet – 2 Grade 9s, 4 Grade 8s, 4 Grade 7s and 1 Grade 6
Madeleine Wilson – 5 Grade 8s, 5 Grade 7s and 1 Grade 6
George Mansell – 5 Grade 8s, 3 Grade 7s and 3 Grade 6s
Eliana Beckett – 3 Grade 8s, 6 Grade 7s and 2 Grade 6s
Howard Hurrell – 2 Grade 9s, 3 Grade 8s, 2 Grade 7s and 3 Grade 6s
Natalia Jednaszewska – 3 Grade 8s, 5 Grade 7s and 3 Grade 6s
Kathleen Steel – 2 Grade 9s, 3 Grade 7s and 6 Grade 6s
And Amelia Porebska, who matched Thomas Waller by also achieving 3 Grade 9s in Art, Polish and English Language

Headteacher Trevor Lawn said “This cohort of students deserve great credit for overcoming the challenges they faced during their secondary school years, and we are delighted to applaud their achievements, which they so richly deserve.  They have been a wonderful group of youngsters to work with over the past five years and I am certain that my dedicated staff colleagues will feel great pride in having helped them to secure these excellent outcomes.  They can now progress to the sixth form courses, college courses and apprenticeships of their choice and we wish all our students well as they embark on the next stage of their young lives with confidence.”
