There is no doubt that examinations are an important part of education, and are considered by many as the primary benchmark of success. Whilst we adopt a rounded approach to education and allow pupils to develop wide-ranging skills which are important in later life, we also make every effort to fully prepare them to excel in external examinations.
Our examination results have shown a consistent improvement for over a decade, as a consequence of greater academic rigour. Pupils sit internal tests in each year to develop exam technique and become accustomed to periods of extended writing, while for senior pupils, teachers hold revision seminars and essay-writing workshops to prepare them for GCSEs and A Levels in the best possible way.
In line with our policy to put our pupils first, we allow every pupil to enter GCSE examinations in core subjects Mathematics and English on multiple occasions, to increase their chances of accessing the highest possible grade.
