We have made a significant increase in percentage of students achieving standard and strong passes; this being achieved in a climate where the examinations are becoming more rigorous and demanding. Progress of students has improved at all levels but we are particularly proud of the increase in the number of students achieving the top grades of 7 to 9 and A to A*
