The new generation of GCSEs marked their debut in the subject of English. Despite national uncertainty, Grange students rose to the challenge with 18% gaining a grade 9 in both English language and English literature. While 20% of pupils achieved a grade 9 in the subject of English language alone – ten times more than national predictions.

Headteacher Debbie Leonard said “This is an outstanding set of results, even more so set against the background of tricky exam reforms and debate around grade boundaries Supported by staff and parents, the students have reached the highest academic standards.

"The fact that many have done so whilst excelling at enrichment activities, such as GB rowing trialist Ellie Cushen, is testimony to the all-round education we provide as a leading educational establishment.”
