Students at the college have made ‘significant gains’ on last year’s set of results with many subject areas reporting an improvement in their rates of progress.

The number of students achieving five grades between nine and four in subjects including maths and English rising to more than 60 per cent – this is among the highest rates the college has ever achieved.

Two thirds of all students taking their GCSEs also achieve a grade four or higher in English and maths.

College principal Andrew Davis said: “I am extremely proud of these results which reflect both the amazing hard work of the students and the dedication, skill and commitment of both teaching and support staff at the college.
