Over half achieving an A* - C grade in modern foreign language
Over 30% achieved the English Bacc.

Head Teacher, Howard Lay, said: “These outstanding results will enable so many pupils to access A level and University courses. They are way above the national average and achieved through hard work, commitment and outstanding teaching. Our students have achieved high results in traditional subjects rather than opting for the easier options which do not help them progress to A level. I am confident that we will again be at the top of the Suffolk league table for value added outcomes.
