Headteacher Phil Randall said, “I am so pleased for the students, their parents, carers and the staff. GCSE’s are always a challenge but this year has seen so many additional challenges with significant changes in what is being studied and the new even harder grading system. Therefore what has been achieved by St Peter’s Church of England VA School students and staff is even more encouraging. The results reflect the fantastic commitment of our students and staff who work closely in partnership with our parents, carers and governors. Our relentless focus on teaching and learning and building the resilience of our students continues to improve their experiences and outcomes.”
