Academic life

The 2016/2017 GCSE and A Level cohorts demonstrated academic diversity by performing consistently well in public examinations across a remarkably broad range of subjects. At GCSE level a fifth of students achieved all A*/A grades or equivalent (grades 9 – 7 under the new system), and 86% of all papers were awarded at A* – B. Sixth Form students’ results were equally celebrated, with a quarter of students achieving all A*/A grades, and almost three-quarters of all papers awarded at A* – B
