Reflecting on the results, Gerard Dineen (Headteacher- Secondary Phase), said: 

“I am delighted to be celebrating our student’s achievements and I am so proud of them.  Our Year 11s worked so hard for these outcomes and it’s so pleasing to seeing them rewarded for their endeavours.  Whilst we are so proud of their efforts, I do also wish to thank our teaching and support staff who worked as hard to support these students to achieve these incredible outcomes.  Our first GCSE cohort has done us proud and have set a high benchmark for those coming after them.  They have undoubtedly helped cement a culture of high aspirations and strong work ethic amongst our student body.  We can now justifiably say that we are one of the highest performing schools in Hounslow, London and England.  I am truly grateful to all the school’s stakeholders for helping us on our journey.  From our site team to our catering and administration staff, it takes a huge number of dedicated, enthusiastic and committed individuals to make these successes happen.  I am thankful for all their support in helping our students to achieve such wonderful outcomes.  We look forward to welcoming these students back into our first A-level cohort and continuing our journey together.”
