Our Most Ables exam results were incredible this summer... but this is

just the start of something special...

Our mission for our Most Able is simple: To out-perform every school in Essex, including the selective grammar schools. In doing so, to ensure our students attend the very best Universities and enjoy top flight careers in whatever pathway they choose.


With this in mind we are delighted with the performance of our Most Able cohort this year. We had a new teaching and learning initiative starting this year based on challenge and assessment in the classroom and independent learning outside of it; students across the board rose to the challenge. The students as a whole put in stunning performances and we saw over 300 Top grades including over 50 grade 9's at GCSE. The Most Able had a Progress 8 score of nearly 0.6 making meaning every student achieved nearly two thirds more on every subject than others in their prior ability nationally.


We also had our very first student achieve a full set of grade As and become successful in the extremely competitive and prestigious entry process to medical school. Well done James!


This year we will see our first applicants to Oxford and Cambridge from our Sixth Form, they will be ably supported in the applications process by our Sixth Form team.


To support our classroom challenge we also have our:
