There are some outstanding individual performances throughout the year group and some significant achievements. Not just by those who achieved the A*/A grades of the cohort but with fantastic results coming from students of all abilities, a testament to their hard work and endeavour. There are some stiff challenges to come at GCSE with the changes being implemented but we are confident that we have some truly outstanding staff and the right atmosphere to enable the school to move forward positively and the students to continue to flourish. We are extremely proud of the students who have maintained a strong tradition of outstanding public examination results at the school and we are indebted to a wonderful staff team who have helped make this happen. Claremont, which was founded with just 40 students in 2011, will start in September with over 300, as interest in this successful school continues to grow.
