We are pleased to celebrate the GCSE results of the 2017 GCSE cohort. With the changes made to some of the examinations the pupils coped with this very well and as a result there were many individual success stories amongst the cohort.

We wish all of our pupils the very best if they are moving on and we are looking forward to welcoming back those who chose our Sixth form.

Next year’s GCSE, A Level and BTEC courses will be broadened with new subjects being offered and the development of an apprenticeship scheme working in partnership with local and national employers. We are one of the few secondary schools in the area to offer music, dance, drama and media in line with our long established reputation for the performing arts. We welcome applications to join our thriving 6th form college with its dedicated facilities. Please click on the link for more information about our Sixth Form https://www.gw-hs.org/about-us/sixth-form/
