One element of the application is the School's prediction of A level grades: the procedures by which these predicted grades are formulated are described in the Predicted Grades document available in the School Policies section of the school website.

Website update

The School's website has been updated to improve the way it looks on all devices including handheld ones, so we hope parents will see an improvement. There is no longer a need for a separate mobile site, all the information should be readily accessible on whatever is used to view the website.  Some parents have had difficulty viewing the school calendar recently – we apologise for this, it is a separate issue from the website which just displays a feed from the calendar. The problem is being looked into and will be improved as soon as possible. If you have any feedback about the website or school communications in general please email: [email protected].
