With numbers 9 to 1 replacing letters A* to G for gradings across the majority of subjects, the school’s 2017-18 Year 11 cohort achieved a consistently high number of grade 9s in all subjects, with those in English and maths described as “exceptional”.

Herts & Essex is also celebrating an “exceptional” ALPs report, which analyses the progress students make from GCSE to A Level based on real grades.

ALPs analyses more than 1,660 schools and colleges and over 73% of all A Levels in an academic year. The school is in the top 10% for performance nationally. Not only this, but a third of all its subjects achieved outcomes that ranked them in the top 25% nationally.

Cathy Tooze, executive head at the Warwick Road secondary, said: “The consistency of the results gained by Herts and Essex at such a high level, year on year, is a testament to the hard work, dedication, focus and partnership of our school community.
