Despite the national trend being down , 33% of our results were grade A* or A (6% up on last year) compared to the national average of 26.5%.
Academically we are very strong and many students are attracted by our reputation particularly in Mathematics in which our results have been in the top 25% nationally every year for the last 8 years. In Physics we are a regional centre of excellence for the Ogden trust and in Music our bands have a national reputation and are the only school band affiliated to the band of the Royal Marines.
The majority of our students move on to undergraduate courses at universities. In the last 8 years we have had over 80% success rate for students being offered places to study Medicine.
