“Although, in line with Ofqual advice, we are advising that these results cannot be compared directly with previous years, we are confident that they will once again put us among the top performing state schools in the country.

“We are also very grateful to our teachers and support staff for their contribution to these results, particularly at a time of great upheaval, uncertainty and change in education.”
