Following on from last week's SUPERB A-level results, we are delighted to announce this year's GCSE success. Once again almost 100% of our pupils achieved 5 A*- C grades. Of these over 85% achieved the gold standard of 5 A*- C including English and Mathematics. Our students continue to excel at the top grades of A* and A. This has increased this year with almost a third of our students achieving these grades in 8 or more of their subjects.
The class of 2014 has performed incredibly well in their A Level examinations, with nearly two thirds of our students gaining the prestigious A*-B grades
Arden’s WW1 commemorations started in November and there have been many activities throughout the year. The culmination of these was a special event held on 27 June to acknowledge the 100th anniversary of the start of the War.
