We are immensely proud of the achievement of our Year 11 students. Their commitment to their studies throughout Year 11 can be seen in their impressive results and we wish them every success in their next steps. We look forward to welcoming many of them into our new Sixth Form, QE6.

As always, our teachers worked incredibly hard to support our students with their examinations and I sincerely thank them all for their dedication to our school and its students.

The school has maintained its progress and we are excited to continue the development of the school as we continually aspire to offer the best education for our students.
