* Published results. Recent Government changes to 2014 Performance Table calculations have resulted in qualifications that previously counted as more than 1 GCSE, now only counting as one. Also, since 29th Sept 2014, first result for each qualification counts.

(Figures in brackets) As our students were already part way through courses and/or re-sat GCSE English in November 2014 we have also calculated results based on previous rules to give a more direct comparison to previous year.
