It is pleasing to deliver another fine set of results for the pupils despite the pressures of these changes. We didn’t make it easier for them by introducing International GCSEs in the sciences. Yet with a clear strategy that focuses on what is best for the pupils, we have managed to deliver another outstanding set of results. We are all very proud of the pupils and congratulate them for another superb year."
