We are especially proud of Bin Bin Chen and Jing Jing Chen who arrived at our school in October 2014 unable to speak English. Both achieved phenomenal grades at AS level, with Jing Jing scoring 3 A grades in Maths and Sciences. Headteacher Michael Antram said “Our dedicated staff have worked hard to implement new course specifications in many subjects and our close working relationship with our students have again been at the heart of our success. We congratulate all of our amazing students on their hard work and successful outcomes”.
