We are extremely proud of our Class of 2023 pupils for their achievements at GCSE Results Day.

During the opening of the envelopes there was a really positive atmosphere in the room with pupils supporting and congratulating each other, and we were delighted to see their hard work pay off.

69% of all entries were awarded at a pass (grade 4) or higher compared to 68% nationally. 22% of all grades were also awarded at the highest levels of grades 7-9 (the equivalent of A*/A) compared to 21% nationally.

The pass rate for pupils in English was 73% and for mathematics 73% with 19% and 23% of the respective subjects graded at 7-9. Pupils have also performed really well in science with 59% of pupils gaining a double award pass and 18% awarded two grades at 7-9.

“We are extremely proud of our Year 11 pupils and the results they have achieved this year. Watching the pupils opening their results knowing that the overwhelming majority of them have met their targets is a fantastic feeling.

I am pleased that our pupils leave not only with high levels of accreditation but with personal qualities and character development that will help them put those qualifications to good use.

We have also seen fantastic levels of pass rates in Spanish (87%), French (73%), Creative iMedia (80%), Sports Studies (81%) and BTEC Dance (93%).Lucie Lakin, Principal

Alex, who is going to sixth form college to study maths, computer science, physics and further maths, was the highest performer in OCR’s GCSE Combined Science A (Gateway Science) in the June 2023 examinations.

“I’ve got nine 9s and an 8 and I think all the revision I did last year really helped and especially all the hard work from the teachers with intervention sessions definitely helped out with me being able to achieve these grades that I wanted.”

Our pupils are leaving us with not only high levels of accreditation, but also with personal qualities that will help them put those qualifications to good use. This is down to our fantastic coaching system and relational approach within school, which allows pupils to develop their character for learning skills, ensuring they leave us as well-round individuals with resilience, determination and independence.
