Over 70* of grades in Mathematics and First Language English were awarded an A* or A.
10% of the cohort were awarded an A*or A in 100% of their subjects.
These exceptional results are the culmination of the hard work and dedication of our students, our ambitious approach and the support of our excellent teachers. On behalf of our school community, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our teachers for always inspiring and challenging our students to achieve more than what they may have thought possible.
The IGCSE is an internationally respected qualification studied by students aged 14-16 years old. Highly valued by universities, the courses cover a broad range of subjects including languages, humanities, social sciences, mathematics, computer science and more. It is a highly academically challenging qualification, and an excellent preparation for students before they embark on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
