Students at APS are celebrating yet another year of excellent GCSE examination results. Under government reforms, GCSE grades for all subjects are now awarded on a scale from 1, being the lowest, to 9, being the highest. There has once again been a rise at our school in the proportion of the three highest grades awarded. More than 40% of the results recorded by pupils at the school were at the new 9 to 7 grades. This represents a phenomenal return on the efforts of both the students and staff throughout the duration of the courses.
