Congratulations to our Year 11 students on...

GCSE results at the popular, heavily oversubscribed school in Coldharbour Lane (ranked 10th most popular in Hertfordshire – School’s Guru) indicate once again that the school is continuing to enable students to achieve their potential. 1 in 4 of all entries this year achieved the top 9 – 7 (A* – A) grades.

Results in all the core subjects have improved significantly over the last 5 years and continued to maintain very good results this year. Results also rose significantly from 2018 figures in Modern Foreign Languages (by 22%) and Humanities subjects (by 12%) for 9 – 4 (A* – C) measures.

Many students, including those listed below, are celebrating some outstanding success and marking the culmination of another year of excellent academic and personal achievements for all students at the school where nearly 1 in 5 students achieved at least five top 9 – 7 (A* and A) grades and the vast majority students passed with at least five good 9 – 4 (A* – C) GCSE grades. Executive Principal Jeremy Turner (appointed in September 2014) said:

“We are once again really pleased with the superb success of our GCSE students this year. So many of them have achieved their target grades and the overall headline figures demonstrate that the school is continuing to provide an excellent education to students in the local area. I would like to congratulate and thank all the hard working and dedicated staff, students and their parents for their commitment and support throughout the year.”
