Many congratulations to all those who received their exam results – a fantastic set of results!
Our A level results were up on last year with almost all who applied to university getting a place and the majority at their first choice. Special congratulations to Chris O’Donnell who secured a place at Oxford to study Maths and Computing.
|Points score per entry||207||201|
|A* - B||51%||45%|
Our GCSE results are on a par with the best we have ever achieved, which is fantastic given that many other schools across the country have experienced significant falls.
76% of students achieved 5+ A*-C with English and Maths.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR STUDENTS AND THEIR TEACHERS WHO WORKED VERY HARD TO ACHIEVE THESE RESULTS!!

As this year is the one hundred year anniversary of the outbreak of World War One and as many of our students are huge fans of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse, I have compiled a list of fourteen fascinating war books, both fiction and non-fiction for further reading (please see below). All titles are available from the school library and details of a creative writing competition on the theme of war are also included.

Travelling to and From School
Recently we notified parents and carers, and students, that as always, they need to take sensible precautions when travelling to and from school.
This reminder followed a small number of incidents around Enfield and beyond over a period of weeks in which schoolchildren have been approached by unknown members of the public travelling in vehicles. In two instances the vehicle was described as a white van.
All we are asking students to do is to ensure they take the normal precautions when walking to and from school. Specifically, we advise them to walk with friends and not to speak to any strangers who might approach them.
Unfortunately some members of the local community, including some students, have unsettled the whole community by spreading stories that have no substance. This is not helpful. I would ask you to discourage students from using social media to spread rumours that are without substance and of course not to do so yourself.
