A superb morning for GCSE Results 2020
It was an absolute joy to welcome back our Year 11 pupils into school today to celebrate their outstanding set of GCSE results. The Senior School Hall had a real buzz as we got to see the students for the first time since March.
We are thrilled that this year, 61% of all results were at the highest grades of 9/8 (A*), 80% were at grades 9-7 (A*/A) and 99.9% were at grades 9-4 (A*-C).
Head Nina Gunson said: “I am so proud of this year group and their amazing set of results. It’s been a very challenging year for our GCSE students but they are a resilient and fearless cohort and we are sure they will go on to achieve great things in their Sixth Form years. Despite the challenges this period has presented us with, they have worked incredibly hard and shown such a positive attitude and we’re confident they are well equipped to enjoy a smooth transition onto the next level of their education.”
We really can’t wait to welcome our new Sixth Formers and the rest of the pupils back to school on Thursday, 3rd September.”

GCSE success for England Hockey extraordinaire Sophie Flint

St Johns ambulance volunteer Lahari Paladugu achieves a stunning set of GCSEs!
Year 11 pupil Lahari has achieved an amazing set of GCSE results all while being a dedicated volunteer at St John Ambulance. In recent years, she has helped out at key events and shopping centres, and she has even assisted with first aid and CPR training for our younger pupils. During lockdown, Lahari has been acutely aware of how difficult it has been for charities to maintain financial stability, and has made herself available as much as possible to help out.
