Our team has been on an exciting journey over the past three years, with Geography GCSE results increasing into the high 70%s; 76% 9-4 Grades in 2019 and 78% Grades 9-4 in 2018. 38% of students attained 9-7 Grades in 2019 and 29% attained 9-7 Grades in 2018. We are driven to continue to improve these results over the coming years. Student numbers at GCSE level have increased year on year leading to an expansion of the team.
