GCSE Results 2016

We are delighted with a fantastic set of GCSE results this year. This cohort has exceeded the excellent results achieved last year and we are extremely proud of all of our students’ achievements. These qualifications will enable Heartlands students to progress onto high quality Post 16 courses and, in future, to top universities and apprenticeships. We wish the 2016 cohort all the best in the next stage of their education and congratulate them on their outstanding achievement. I would like to thank our incredible staff who worked tirelessly to support students to achieve these results.
