We are justifiably proud of our reputation for academic excellence and are pleased that the school is part of the Leading Edge Partnership.

There is clear evidence that the progress made by students at the school is significantly greater than would be expected, particularly in respect of the achievement of boys of this age group.

At GCSE the school performs highly in terms of progress and outperforms many other grammar Schools.  Progress at A Level is strong and compares favourably to similar schools.

If you need to contact the school about examinations you can send an email to: Examinations@ichs.org.uk
