Mrs Gammon, Head of Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School was extremely pleased with the results. “It has been a very difficult two years for all pupils studying GCSEs. The hard work and commitment of our pupils has been justifiably rewarded with excellent results. This cohort should be proud of everything that they have achieved, and we all wish them every success for the future.”.
