  • Wicked Trip

    23rd October 2014

    45 Hanson students embarked on a journey to see Wicked The Musical at the Apollo Theatre in London. The show is a prequel to The Wizard of Oz and students from years 9-13 were in awe of "the untold story of the witches of Oz". We had a wonderful time and the show was fantastic. All of our students behaved impeccably and even coped with the hour delay on the motorway meaning it became an even longer day! All worth it for the amazing set, acting, singing and dancing. Well done Hanson!

  • A level and GCSE Results 2014

    14th October 2014

    Congratulations to all of our students who sat exams in the summer.  

    GCSE results held up in what was a volatile year nationally. 45% of our students achieved the 5A*-C including English and Maths which is 4% down on last year, but under much more challenging conditions. Changes to grade boundaries, linear entry on exams, removal of coursework and reduced value of vocational qualifications have all made GCSEs harder for all abilities. 

    We are pleased with our A level results. 97% of students achieved a A*-E
