    Exam success at A Level is A* to E and we are justifiably proud of any student who achieves to the best of their potential. Within our results this year there are some fantastic achievements that headline results do not portray. As a school our students consistently perform better than their prior attainment would suggest with considerable ‘value’ being added. The same is true of the destinations of students. Education, in a great school, includes activities that develop young people’s all round skills. This would include fund raising for charities, work in the local community as well as mentoring younger students.
    It’s difficult to pitch it right for everyone with regards with what we publish- we list all students with their A level success to the press but hold back the grades.(This was in the Sentinel last week and in the Chronicle this week). I would echo many of Tracey’s comments and will endeavour to get that across better next year.

  2. Tracey Cooke says:

    Great news for those that have done so well but always think it’s disheartening on those who didn’t get or never expected to get anything like A* and As to see only the A achievers listed in glowing lights.

    Well done to all those who have worked really hard. For those who were not mentioned: Remember you will get much further in life with a strong but thoughtful personality than you ever will getting high grades at school.
