With a robust pupil premium intervention team, slightly smaller class sizes and our links with the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), pupil performance has been consistently excellent at both key stages for a number of years. In 2018, 72% attained at least a grade 4 at GCSE level, with 30% attaining at least a grade 7.
The school has recently become a PFEG Centre of Excellence in Financial Education due to the collaborative work between all of the faculties within the school, led by the maths department.
