Headteacher Gerard McNamara commented:
‘The results this year were very pleasing, and a real reflection of the hard work from all in our school community – students, staff and governors. The school has made big improvements over the last few years, and this year’s results have been achieved during a time of some of the biggest changes to affect the exam system in many years. A big factor in our success continues to be the constant support of parents, who always insist on high standards for our boys and regular homework being completed to a high standard.

With this fantastic news we look forward to the year ahead and further improvements to celebrate. The vast majority of our students have now secured the grades they need to progress to our Sixth Form or other choices, which ensures we can all move forward together as a school community. My heartfelt congratulations go to all students and families.
