Headteacher Karl Newell said: "I am very pleased to congratulate our Year 11 students on their excellent GCSE results.

"As everyone knows, this year’s GCSE results had to be awarded differently from usual, after exams were unable to go ahead due to Covid-19.

"However, we need to remember that our students have worked incredibly hard over the last two years and thoroughly deserve the grades that they have been awarded.

"Exams are only the conclusion to many thousands of hours of lesson and independent work.

"I am confident that the grades achieved by our pupils are a true reflection of their ability.

"I am particularly pleased that a significant number of our pupils have achieved top grades.

"We are looking forward to seeing many of our students return to Crompton House Sixth Form in September and to hearing how others have been successful in gaining places on various college courses."
