"Join us for the first half of an epic journey through the greatest story ever told. The tale of Pip, Charles Dickens' mighty "Great Expectations" will straddle the two ends of this academic year. Part One of this two-part adaptation will be performed next week on Thursday 30 November and Friday 1 December in the Main Hall at 7pm. (Please note the earlier than usual start time). Part Two will form our Trinity Term drama production in July 2018. Lose yourself in the interlocking destinies of some of the most celebrated characters in English Literature, brought to life by a huge and eclectic cast drawn from students in every year group in the school and with a record number of teaching staff mining their thespian talent! This promises to be a very special evening of live theatre."

GCSE Results Day successes

Today we celebrate many successes.

Due to the new more rigorous examination in English and Maths it is not appropriate to compare this year’s results with previous academic years but some most notable achievements were:
• A*-C % was over 85% in Art, Biology, Chemistry, Latin, Music, Physics, Religious Studies, and Statistics with many of these subjects achieving over 90% in this measure.
• A*-A% was greater than 40% in Art, Biology, Chemistry, Latin and Physics with Biology and Physics achieving 51.4% and 60% respectively in this measure.

Mrs CY Gammon said “I am very proud of the results produced by this cohort of students, the vast majority of which joined us during Year 9. This year these students have had to face the new more rigorous examinations in English and Mathematics and this has put added pressure on them. I am delighted that they have risen to the challenges put in front of them and they should be truly proud of their achievements”.
