Results

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 2016 73% of students achieved A*-C grades in English and maths and 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 2016, with IBDP students surpassing the world average score.
