Our School

Our Results

I would like to congratulate all of our Year 11 students on their GCSE results. To have achieved the grades they have against the back drop of lock downs, home schooling and a global pandemic is a remarkable achievement, and one for which they should feel very proud.

It is worth noting that prior to Year 11 their last full year of uninterrupted education was in 2018/19 when they were in Year 8.

Staff at the school have worked tirelessly to support our students through this period and I would like to thank them for everything they have done over the last two to allow students to achieve these results.

These outcomes mean that the vast majority of our students can progress on to their first choice of post 16 study, which for may will be our own sixth form. Others will progress on to local colleges in Derby, Nottingham and Loughborough to undertake a variety of courses.




In the summer of 2020 students were not able to sit their examinations at either GCSE or A level due to the coronavirus pandemic. The grades they were awarded were produced by their teachers based on work they had completed up to the point of school closures in late March. The information below provides details of the schools performance in examinations in 2018 and 2019, as well as details of the grades awarded on 2020.
