The wait is finally over and students from CNS can now celebrate after receiving their A level, AS  and GCSE results, which headteacher Jim Nixon said are a reflection of the hard work put in by both students and staff.

The AS and A level results came in first, with the school achieving 75% A*-C A level pass rate and 95% A*-E, with 87% gaining three A level passes.

“We are incredibly pleased with the achievements of our students and wish to say thank you to their teachers and families for the fantastic support they have given,” said Jim.

“It is wonderful that so many of our students have been successful in securing their chosen destinations, including Oxford, medicine and many Russell Group universities.

“The hard work and effort that the students have put in must not be underplayed and they are truly deserving of their success at both AS and A level.”

A week later the GCSE results were in and revealed 65% of students achieved five or more A*-C grades with English and Maths – up from 58% in 2013 – and 72% achieving five or more A*-C.

“This year matches are best ever results with English and Maths,” said Jim. “We are really pleased for our students, they have all worked incredibly hard.

“34% of our students achieved five or more A*/A grades and our focus on personalised support for students at all levels has clearly paid dividends.

“There are a number of real success stories, plenty of smiles and a school full of happy students.”

Among the success stories is Pooja Jageer from Eaton, who achieved 11 A*s and hopes to study engineering in the future.

“I can’t imagine doing GCSEs anywhere else, I have really enjoyed my time here,” she said.

Jim added: “My thanks to all our students for being such fantastic young people and working so hard, to my superb staff for all their dedication and going the extra mile, and to our parents for their support.

“My thanks also to the governing body whose support and challenge has helped us achieve these results.

“All our GCSE students take their exams at the end of year 11, therefore we are confident that our published results will be no different to what will appear in the school league tables.”
