Examination Results


As one of the North West's leading academic schools, our public examination results are consistently amongst the best in the area, both at GCSE and A Level.

We are proud of the high percentage of passes our students achieve at the top grades, and also of the rigour and breadth of our curriculum.

Almost half of all GCSE passes were at the highest A*/A/7-9 grades in 2017 and a fifth of our GCSE candidates achieved 10 or more A*/A/7-9 grades.

Our overall 'Attainment 8' score of 56.5 is ahead of all other schools in Sefton, which is further evidence of the outstanding breadth and quality of our curriculum and academic achievement.
