"We are confident that the superb progress our students have made since joining our school will be reflected in our Progress 8 score when it is released.

"I am very proud of the way our students have performed and would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work in securing such an impressive set of results.

"I wish every student happiness and success for the future."

"I would like to wish our students all the very best as they embark upon their chosen post 16 courses."
