Student success in the new GCSEs. Well done to the Class of 2018!

I would like to express our warmest congratulations to our GCSE students who have received their results today following the reform to all qualifications. Against a backdrop of unprecedented change and much tougher exams in across almost all GCSE and Level 2 courses our students have done extremely well.

It is hard to draw comparisons between the year groups but these results reflect a great deal of hard work by students and the staff who work with them. As a campus we have challenged our Year 11 students to work even harder because of the unknown nature of the new exams. We are thrilled to see that the hard work and determination has paid off.

Due to a problem with the exam board and the publication of some of the GCSE English Language results we are not able to bring you the normal information about our highest performing students. We will aim to publish this information in the next few days once the exam board confirms the results.

Thank you to parents and carers for their unwavering support during the busy revision and exam period.  Your family support is absolutely central to the students doing so well; these are your grades too!

My thanks and appreciation goes out to our staff who make it possible for the students to achieve these grades from the moment they start on campus in Year 7.

For any students who are staying to continue their studies at Post 16 please remember that the details for signing on have been sent out to you prior to the summer holiday. If you are unsure about what you are doing please contact the Post 16 team;  Staff will be on campus from Tuesday 28 August and Post 16 sign on day is Wednesday 29 August 2018, 9.30am – 11.30am. Year 12 studies will commence on Friday 31 August at 8.40am and have their photos taken during period 3.
