Year 11 Parents’ Consultation Evening

 
Thursday 4 December - 4.30 to 7.30pm

Dear Parents/Guardians

We are holding our Year 11 Parents' Consultation Evening between 4.30 pm and 7.30 pm on Thursday 4 December and warmly invite you to this important meeting to discuss your son’s/daughter's progress.

Students must attend in full school uniform.

To make the evening as helpful and convenient for you as possible, we are using an appointment system. We hope that this will avoid queues and allow you to use the most suitable part of the evening. Each appointment is scheduled for four minutes and it is important that this is adhered to. Teachers have also been requested to adhere to the four minute slot and at the end of that time will bring the interview to a close. We know, from experience, that this is the only way a large number of parents/guardians can be seen in what is a very limited time. We thank you for your understanding in this matter. If you think you will need longer than four minutes for your discussion, please make an appointment for another occasion by contacting the school office. A gap is needed between your appointments to allow time to move round the building.

Exam Results - Summer 2014

Once again, many of our students excelled themselves in their examinations this summer.

At A Level, we had more entries graded at A* and A than ever before.  We were exceptionally proud in all of our students' results, and celebrated particularly with Andrew Guy and Adam Townson who both gained exceptional grades (Adam achieved an amazing 4A* grades) which allowed them to progress to Cambridge University to study engineering and medicine respectively.  Two further students gained grades to study medicine and an astonishing 17 students (nearly a quarter of the year group) gained at least 2 A grades.

At GCSE, again we had the second highest proportion of  A* and A grades that our students have ever achieved, with almost 30% of entries gaining these two top grades.  OVer 50% of entries were graded B or above. We were particularly pleased with our results in English.  Despite a national picture that saw the English pass rate dropping by 4%, our pass rate INCREASED by 4% with 80% of the year group gaining a C grade or higher.  72% gained a C grade or higher in maths and 66% of the year group gained 5 higher grades including English and Maths.  This figure is almost identical to the results in 2013 but it has been much more difficult to gain 5 GCSEs in 2014 because of the changes in "equivalent" qualifications. We're delighted that so many of our pupils will be continuing their studies in our Sixth Form.

Very well done to all our students, and thank you to the support provided by our dedicated team of teaching and support staff.
