GCSE Results

Students today celebrated some outstanding results which represented their personal best and are a testament to their hard work and the support they had from their teachers, We are all very proud of them.

The percentage of students achieving the highest grades continues to rise with the overall percentage of grades 7-9 doubling across the school, a fantastic achievement. 

The following students secured the very highest outcomes;
Annie Varney with 4 grade 9s and 5 grade 8s
Alba Cantero 4 at grade 9 and 6 at grade 8
Emily Mile Thom with 5 at grade 9, 2 at grade 8
Liam Hackett with 3 at grade 9 and 4 at grade 8
Ryan Wood also with 3 grade 9s and 6 at Grade 8.

In English the top grades rose by 6%, three quarters achieved a pass and over 60% of students achieved a strong pass, a fantastic result.

We are particularly delighted with a significant improvement in the attainment and progress of students classified by the government as disadvantaged. These results mean that all our students have the very best chances of future success.

Update: School Open as normal 17th July

We have been assured by Highways that Mereway will be open to traffic from tomorrow early morning . Therefore school will start at the usual time with period 1 starting at 8:45am. The school is fully open this week and all students were/are expected to attend unless unable to do so due to illness and the school notified.

Can we take this opportunity to thank you for your support and patience. Your understanding that the situation has been beyond our control is appreciated and staff and students have been fantastic.

We Will Rock You

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

It’s the year 2300, live music has been banned from iPlanet. Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. It’s a safe, happy Ga Ga World.

Unless you’re a rebel. Unless you want to rock!

Resistance is growing. Underneath the gleaming cities, down in the lower depths live the Bohemians. Rebels who believe that there was once a Golden Age where the kids formed their own bands to write their own songs. They call that time, The Rhapsody. Can live music be saved? Do instruments still exist?  

There’s only one way to find out! Join Abbeyfield School as they proudly present We Will Rock You!
