Congratulations for the best ever IGCSE results!
The Year 11 pupils for 2018 have achieved an excellent set of results that they should be rightly proud of. These are the best every results achieved for IGCSE. The pupils sit a combination of IGCSEs and GCSEs. The majority of subjects taken at are IGCSE that use grades A* to G. The majority of GCSE subjects in England now use the new grades of 9 to 1. We are thrilled that eight pupils achieved a staggering 8 or more grades at A*/A/ or 9/8/7! Well done to all the pupils and to the staff who have worked so hard to get these grades.
