There were high scoring subjects across the disciplines from French with 80% grade 9s to PE and Religious Studies with 75% and 63% respectively. English results were particularly strong with 68% grade 9s in English Literature and 53% in English Language.

At least half the year group achieved grade 9 in a broad range of subjects including: Biology, DT Product Design, Geography, History and Latin.
