School achieved its best-ever GCSE results
HEAD teacher Paul James said the school had achieved its best-ever GSCE results last summer, with pupils performance improving year on year.
"We have a 96 per cent attendance rate and we are ahead on GCSE performance, more than most schools nationally and locally.
"Our results in maths and science are among the best in the county," he said.
The school has recently been awarded the Stonewall Champion certificate, a programme which helps schools to promote a safe and inclusive learning environment.

Mr James said: "Respect is central to our work at Crispin and we have a zero tolerance attitude to all forms of harassment, so we are delighted to be a Stonewall Champion."
He highlighted a number of other incentives in the school, including a fair trade café, run by the pupils, a school shop staffed by pupils, and a book and biscuit event which saw staff members reading to pupils every Friday.
"We're a comprehensive school," he said.
"We take pupils from across all backgrounds - I know that we are not a perfect school, like all schools there are things we are always trying to do better.
"But we are not the school that is described in this document."
He said parents and the community had been supportive following the report being published.
"It was like a weight was lifted from my shoulders," he said.
"I have had so many nice letters and emails from so many people who have come out in support of us. I can't even tell you how many."
He said he had invited inspectors back to the school for a reinspection "as early as possible."
Ofsted are believed to be heading back to the school early next year to reassess it.
