GCSE Results 2017

We celebrate the excellent successes of our recent year 11 pupils and I would like to congratulate each one of them on their achievements, particularly as so many across the year group exceeded the target grades for their GCSE exams. They rightly deserve to be very pleased with their achievements and we are certainly very proud of them I look forward to congratulating them all in person on Thursday 9th November for the year 12 Certificate evening. I know that the staff join me in sending our congratulations to all of our former CVC pupils. I wish our 2017 year 11 pupils much success in their next ventures on whichever destination path they now travel.

Joy Hadley, Acting Principal
