  • Incredible GCSE Results 2022!

    Published 25/08/22

    We were thrilled to welcome back our Year 11 students today to receive their GCSE results.  The nerves, tension and apprehension could be clearly seen on their faces as they tentatively opened the envelopes to see the grades they had been awarded. 

    Very quickly the sounds of laughter, cheers and excitement were filling the school as our Year 11 celebrated the fantastic results they truly deserved! We were ecstatic for all our students who have achieved yet again a set of amazing results.  

    Our 2022 headlines are:

    30% 8-9 grades

    50% 7-9 grades

    87% 5-9 grades

    95% 4-9 grades

    The Year 11s of 2022 have worked hard throughout the last two years to ensure they were successful today and the consistent work in lessons, at home and through the exam period; supported by teachers and parents was worthwhile.  Our Year 11s now have doors wide open on their very exciting futures.

    We were delighted to have so many of our Year 7 and 8 students take part in the Kingswood residential trip this term.

    All the boys took part in a range of activities including Laser Tag, Leap Of Faith, 3G Swing and Nightline along with the Obstacle Challenge.
