It was reassuring to see our pupils achieve over 23% A* grades , which is only marginally lower than last year’s Centre Assessed Grades of 24%. I was also delighted to see all of the pupils who sat BTEC qualifications achieved a distinction or a distinction . Well done to all and good luck in your future endeavors”.
