Congratulations to our exceptional students of 2017– you truly smashed it! I am thrilled with the brilliant set of GCSE results our students have secured for 2017. As in previous years, our aspirational targets alongside their hard work and determination, really has paid off.
Over 72% of our students secured A* – A grades – which is fantastic – and 10% of our students secured 5 or more A* – A grades! For the Governments Basics Measure of A* – C English and Maths early indications are 63% of the cohort secured this standard. Furthermore we recorded our best ever GCSE PE results with 92% of students securing an A* – C grade. Other subject areas that achieved brilliant results include GCSE Performing Arts (Music, Dance and Drama) all securing 100% A* – C again, and over 55% secured an A* – A grade in Dance alone.
In Art, over 74% of our students achieved A* – C and similarly in History at least 73% of students secured an A* – C. These subject areas have again performed well above the National Averages.
Our Science subjects “shone” reaffirming our place as a leading school in the area for these subjects both at GCSE and A’ Level. Our students secured 71% % A* – C in the Science subjects and 33 students secured an A* – A grade in the Triple Sciences. Well done everyone! Outstanding student performances were secured by many students but of particular note are:
Isik Celik – A* x 8, A x 2, B x 1
Ben Garland – A* x 6, A x 2, B x 2
Ellie Colclough – A* x 6, A x 3, B x 1

We will continue to strive for even better results for all our students in 2018 and look forward to our students returning in September to Headlands School to study in our thriving successful 6th Form.
