GCSE Results 2018 – The Compton School

The Compton School staff would like to congratulate the Class of 2018 for their fabulous GCSE results. The ‘bar got higher’ this year; with subject content becoming broader and more difficult, coupled with the removal of coursework in nearly all subjects, but they succeeded in achieving their target grades or above. We are very proud of each individual child and their own personal achievements.
