Headteacher, Phil Kelly, commented: "We are delighted for our students, parents/carers and staff with this first set of results under the new-style GCSEs which now apply in most subjects. Changes to the grading system make comparisons with previous years difficult in these new qualifications with their more challenging content and a different assessment system to the previous one. There are many excellent individual performances to celebrate by students of all abilities.''
