Examination Results

We are extremely proud of our reputation for academic success and delighted to strengthen this further with another round of excellent A-level and GCSE results in 2020. Please note, due to our independent school status, our results are not always accurately reflected in the Department for Education league tables. For up to date facts, figures and comparisons, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are a small school which punches above its weight; our examination results rival some of the most academically selective schools in the entire North East region.

We are one of the region’s leading independent schools (The Sunday Times, 2019) and the best school in Stockton-on-Tees for attainment at GCSE (DfE School performance league tables, 2017). We are proud to add significant value to each and every students’ education.

We are delighted to also be recognised as the 13th best small independent school sixth form in the UK by The Telegraph (2018).
