There were other excellent performances within wider subject areas, for example Music and Music Technology achieved 100% A*-C grades whilst the proportion of pupils in both Art and Digital Art achieving at A*-C grades was 93%.
There were also notable individual student performances including;
-Kieran Hewitson – who achieved 8 A* grades, a grade 9 and a grade 8.

We’d like to congratulate our pupils receiving their GCSE results today. These results are the culmination of 5 years of work and commitment from both pupils and staff ensuring pupils achieve positive outcomes to form a solid foundation for the next phase of their education.

Emily Murdoch 10 A* and 3 A grades.
Grace Duffy 8 A*, 2 A and a B grade.

As a school we are pleased that our Maths department continue to show an improvement in the progress that pupils make from Key Stage 2 which reflects the improvements in the progress pupils are making across all subjects. The proportion of pupils achieving 5 or more GCSEs at A*-C has improved by over 10% and figure those achieving 5 A*-C including Maths and an English also improved by 5%. As well as the fabulous individual performances what we are also delighted with is the continuing positive trend in progress for the whole year group.
