The Headmaster, Nicholas Dyer was delighted with the results, commenting: “These are very impressive results indeed particularly in light of national concerns over marking in Maths and English Literature for example and the tightening up of grade boundaries. They are a testament to the skill, passion and sheer hard work of staff at the school, allied to the exceptional efforts of our students.”
