These represent significant and continued improvements in the outcomes our young people achieve, and are the product of hard work on behalf of both our students and staff. We are looking forward to welcoming many of our current students back into the 6th Form, alongside young people from other schools, following our excellent Post 16 results where students achieved 31% A*or A grades, 44% A* or B grades. 

All in all this year’s results at Key Stage 4 and 5 evidence the ongoing improvements taking place at Plumstead Manor and we’re delighted to see so many of our young people achieve so well. Our students follow a broad and balanced curriculum across a range of academic and vocational subjects.   The recipe for success here is simple - high quality teaching, in a safe and friendly environment set alongside high aspirations for academic scholarship, and high expectations for behaviour and personal development. We focus on our students being curious, disciplined, resilient, collaborative and imaginative. These are the hallmarks of learning here and set our young people up to become rounded adults, ready to flourish and succeed, equipped to go on and change the world for the better.

 Head Teacher Douglas Greig commented:

We’re very proud of what all of our Year 11 students have achieved in their GCSEs this year, results that put them in a very strong position to go onto their chosen pathway of study or training – congratulations to them all. Their hard work alongside the skilled and dedicated staff at Plumstead Manor has really paid off producing significant improvements in many areas. This all bears witness to the important changes we’re making together at the school which are securing better outcomes for our students. In a year of volatility in exams results across the country, with new grades and harder examinations, these excellent results demonstrate our high standards and our commitment to really changing children’s lives by transforming the quality of education we offer. We’re delighted to be welcoming so many of our students back into the Sixth Form, and wish all our young people every success in their future.”
