Dr Julian Murphy, Headmaster, said: “I am absolutely delighted with our GCSE results this year. Our results have improved on last year on every single measure, with 26% of grades at 9-7 and 52% of grades at 9-6/B. These results are testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and teachers and, for a non-selective school, are truly impressive. Most exciting is the fact that our percentage of grade 6 results are up by 21%. This shows that the educational reforms underway within our School are already raising the number of grade 6 GCSEs gained by middle and lower ability pupils. This is a trend that will only grow stronger over the coming years.

Particular congratulations to Maud, who achieved nine GCSEs at 9 and 8 grades and Naomi, who achieved seven GCSEs at 9 and 8 grades.

Megan was ‘excited and relieved’ with her results which are enabling her to continue at Loughborough Amherst School for her A Levels including PE.

Emily and her mum were over the moon with her results and she’s now looking forward to tackling her A Levels.

Congratulations to Naomi who was speechless with her results. Having not expected to achieve any grade 9s to get two, in Biology and PE, was almost too much to take in.
