We are delighted to say that the hard work of our students and staff, and the improvements we have made in teaching and learning over the last four years, has resulted in another set of outstanding GCSE and A Level results. We continue to outperform most state schools in the North East of England and on almost all key measures we have achieved the best results in the school’s history in one of the last two years.
