Congratulations to all of Year 11 who received their GCSE and BTEC Grades this morning. The levels of resilience, independence, and determination, shown by so many of our students, have been incredible and their hard work has paid off with so many achieving excellent results.

Respect | Aspiration | Resilience. Graded Ofsted ‘Good’, January 2019 The school forms part of the Aylesbury Vale Academy.

This means that, as they progress through the school, the children will be able to use the expertise of our secondary colleagues and the academy’s resources to enrich their learning and to provide additional challenge. The primary school is housed in a separate (neighbouring) campus: it has its own distinct identity and is led by its own headteacher and leadership team.

A fantastic group of enthusiastic GCSE geographers spent the day on 12th October 2022 in Black Park, Berkshire. They carried out fieldwork tasks within the woodland ecosystem, including transects and bipolar surveys, where they developed their skills which will be assessed in Paper 3 of their Geography GCSE. Students also took on the challenge of GoApe; a series of high ropes and zip wires through the forest. We were so proud of the resilience shown by all the students and hope they have all gained fun memories (and geographical skills) from the day

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR RESULTS YEAR 11

We are extremely proud of all of our Year 11s. They have endured a significant amount of disruption to their learning and lives over the past two years.

These students have performed extremely well against the odds and there were some outstanding individual results with almost all of our students coming into school to collect their results in person and being confident enough to be interviewed by journalists.

Some departments performed extremely well too with Spanish, Religious Studies, Drama, Music, Business Studies, Engineering and Fine Art leading the way. Our staff have worked extremely hard alongside our students and we wish them all well as they move on to the next stage in their lives.

Congratulations.
