The cohort of 2022 were the first group of Year 11 students to face public examinations since 2019 and the Covid pandemic began. They have done something amazing and completed their schooling in the face of a global pandemic with long periods of self-isolation during their last year of KS3 and their first of KS4. It was only in January 2022 that the students discovered that they would indeed be sitting public examinations, despite the media suggestions that more school closures could follow. This has been an incredibly demanding time and we are immensely proud of all our students and what they have achieved during these unprecedented times.  They have shown resilience and determination and worked incredibly hard to make sure that they are personally ready for the next stage of their education.

As always, there were some exceptional individual performances with 253 grade 9s achieved across all subjects by our students! Two students achieved a remarkable grade 9 in English Literature, English Language and Maths.

With regard to the EBacc suite of qualifications, 172 students achieved a grade 5 in English, Maths, Science, Languages and Humanities and 53% of students achieved a standard pass in the EBacc suite of subjects.

When compared to national averages, the vast majority of subjects exceeded national results at both 9-7 and 9-5 grade boundaries.

Overall, 8% of students achieved Grade 9 in maths, 2% achieved a Grade 9 in English Language and 4% achieved a Grade 9 in English Literature, with many more grade 9s were celebrated across all subjects.

9% of students achieved an average grade of an 8 or higher (the equivalent to the old A* GCSE grade)!

This is an excellent set of results and a testament to the enthusiasm, ambition and sheer hard work of our students and staff, and unwavering support from parents.

Many of our students have so successfully balanced their academic studies with wide-ranging participation in the arts and sport, including competing at national level, this is an absolute credit to them.

Congratulations to our 2022 cohort.

We wish them all the best for the future.
