Parmis Khalili will be attending New York University in the USA. We wish all of our leavers the best of luck with their future endeavours and congratulate them on their achievements.

This year the entries at AS Level were reduced as for a number of subjects we chose not to take the AS Level examinations after switching to the new linear A Level system. We are however proud to report that 41.6% of our students achieved A-B at AS Level. 

GCSEs

The school would like to congratulate its students on another fantastic year for GCSE results. Across the 18 subjects offered at GCSE and IGCSE our students achieved highly and we are happy to report that our A* percentage is up to 18.6% and that our A*/A percentage has improved to 42.6%.

As the school is non-selective academically this is a real accomplishment for our pupils, who have achieved these excellent results whilst managing a dual curriculum with the Performing Arts.

The school is proud of the achievements of all of the students in this year’s GCSE cohort, but would like to make a special mention of Olivia Foskett (8 A* and an 8 in Maths), Emily Robins (8 A*, 1 A and an 8 in Maths), Samuel Doyle (6 A*, 1 A and a 7 in Maths), Micaela Infante (2A*, 5 A and an 8 in Maths), Julia Lazarus (5A*, 3 A), Mia Rose (5A*, 3 A and an 8 in Maths) and Hannah Pearce (3 A*, 5A).

We would like to thank all of the staff involved in helping the students achieve these results. Special mentions should be made to the Biology, English and Drama departments who will be celebrating the largest percentage of As and A*s this year.
