Examination Results

GCSE 2019

We were delighted to celebrate GCSE results with so many of our students on Thursday 22nd August. This was the first year that students took the new more challenging GCSE exams with the 1-9 scale in all GCSE subjects.

73.3% students reached at least grade 4 (the standard pass or previous C grade) in English and Maths, an increase of 4% compared with last year.

We were particularly pleased to see excellent results in English Literature, Business, Media Studies, Chemistry and History.

Our students achieved an amazing 67 of the top Grade 9s with Lily Nelson achieving an incredible ten Grade 9s – in every subject she took. The following students all achieved 8 or more Grade 7, 8 and 9s (the equivalent of As and A*s):

Honey Ajisafe                  Zaina Alavi                           Lucy Cloutman

Taia Hart                            Fiona Isufi                             Caitlin Jarvis

Cira Jarvis                         Julija Jazuk                            Elsaid Islamaj

We would like to thank all our students, staff and families for their hard work and commitment to making these GCSE results, ones of which everyone can be proud.

A-Level 2019

We are delighted to celebrate the high achievement of our 2019 Year 13 cohort. The students should feel very proud of what they have achieved. 

One of our most impressive performers was Sultan Aydemir who achieved A*A*A* in Biology, Chemistry and Maths. She will be studying Medicine at Imperial College London next year. We wish her every success following her impressive achievements. Two other students will go on to study Medicine at university. Andrea Georgiou achieved A*AA in Biology, Chemistry, and Maths. She will study  at Kings College London. Leo Cherry achieved A*in Psychology, as well as As in Biology and Chemistry and will study at Queen Mary. We wish our future medics every success!

Another fantastic performer was Ewan Hindes , who achieved A*A*AA in Art, Maths, Geography and Physics. To attain such high grades in a variety of subjects was a marvellous achievement. Matthew Baldwin achieved an A in Business, A in English, and an A* in Media. He will study Film Studies at Kings. Georgina Dagley, Layla Nasli, and Anastasia Theodorou all achieved A*AA and will go on to study Psychology, Politics, and Digital Culture respectively. 

James Coleman achieved an A* in Business and Alex Silcott achieved an A* in Economics. The boys were very proud of their results. James will be going on to an apprenticeship and Alex will study Politics and Economics at Nottingham. 

We also celebrated our students' impressive track record in vocational qualifications, with 83% achieving D*/D in their BTEC Business qualification. 

The school is incredibly proud of all our wonderful students who performed well across a variety of different subjects with a large number going on to study at Russell Group universities. Additionally, a good number of our students will go on to follow an apprenticeship or enter the world of work .


Information for Parents 

As Year 11 progress steadily towards their  exams we are keen to support their wellbeing as well as their revision. Stress is an inevitable part of exams but for some students can be particularly distressing. There is a helpful guide attached here to offer some support on how best to manage stress.

We wish all our students good luck in the upcoming exams.
