Summary of Student Attainment 2021

There are many indicators of the success of a school; the most publicised being examination results.  We are very proud of the successes of all our students and the following pages show their successes in the many different subjects we offer. The examination results in 2021 were obviously compiled in an unusual way compared to previous years but we know we awarded grades with both rigour and integrity and feel confident that they reflect the hard work and achievements of all our students
