Principal Mark Woodhouse said: “Against the backdrop of what has been a challenging year for the academy and a number of significant changes to GCSE examinations this year our students have performed admirably, with our overall headline measures not dissimilar to previous years.
"Results in subjects like English and in many of our vocational subject areas have performed well.
