Firstly, I would like to personally congratulate our students for achieving record breaking GCSE performance.
For the first time in the school’s history, the 5 or more A*-C success rate has gone above 80%. The percentage of A*A grades is also a school record having reached 24%.
However, as you may be aware, there is a national issue with the marking and grades awarded in English Language GCSE. Like many schools, our students have been affected. If your English Language grade is causing you concern over your 6th form place, please come and talk to Mr Bolter, Head of 6th form (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I want to reassure you that the school will be sympathetic to students who have an unexpectedly disappointing English result.
Martin Williams, Head Teacher
