The school believes it sits firmly in the top 10 per cent of schools nationally with its results, in which 37 per cent of all grades were a 7, 8 or 9, and 87 per cent of all pupils achieved a pass of grade 4 or above in English and maths.

Half of the year group achieved a gold standard EBacc pass, which requires grade 5 or higher in two sciences, English, maths and history or geography.

Headteacher Michael Johnson said: “Today is for our pupils, who have been simply superb.

“This would have been impossible without such great parenting and the support of a wonderful board of directors. I would like to make particular mention of our staff team this year; it has been a pleasure to work alongside them. They have shown such intelligence, great resilience and have unflinchingly put all their focus on making sure our pupils do the very best they can.
