  • This places us well in to the top 25% of schools nationally

  • 67% of our students achieved at least 5 A*-C grades, including English and Mathematics (66% in 2009, 50% in 2008)

  • Again, in the top 25% of schools nationally

  • Significant number of students attaining straight A* and A grades in all their subjects

  • We began our policy of inviting parents in to school at the start of Year 10 in September 2008 i.e. the cohort of students who achieved their GCSEs in 2009

  • Since then results have steadily improved

  • Many other factors have helped: use of data, targeted support, personal mentoring, focus on Assessment for Learning
