Our Sixth Form goes from strength-to-strength with progress being rated "well above average". We have been commended by the Department for Education on several occasions for our excellent  performance in public examinations and we are hold designated Teaching School status, providing support to other institutions.  Our Progress 8 score in 2017 putting us in the top 100 non-selective state funded schools in England based on the Key Stage 2 – Key Stage 4 value added measure.  We are very proud of the success of our motivated students and dedicated staff.
