Since opening, the Academy has more than tripled its examination results at GCSE with over 70% of students achieving A* - C grades in core subjects. In 2017 76% of students achieved grades 4-9 in English and maths. In 2016 the Academy was ranked in the top 50 schools in the country for its 'Progress 8' score. 

Our popular International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme once again resulted in a 100% success rate for Sixth Formers in 2017, with IBDP students surpassing the world average score.
