  • 42 students completed the prestigious HPQ independent research qualification in addition to their I/GCSE entries with 36 of these being graded at A*

Head teacher Ed Elliott said:

“Perse pupils should be congratulated for the excellent GCSE results they have achieved. These achievements are the products of years of dedicated study, excellent teaching and pastoral support. I am delighted to see so many pupils achieving their individual potential.

It is even more impressive that alongside their academic studies, Year 11 have played full roles in the sporting, musical, artistic, charity and outdoor pursuits lives of the School. This has given them not just an excellent academic education but the confidence, perspective, inter-personal skills and humility on which future happiness and success rest.”
