The wait was finally over for our Year 11 students when they received their GCSE exam results in August. They were the first cohort of students taking the new exams which are designed to be more challenging. Of our 120 students 65% achieved a grade 4-9 in both Maths and one of their English GCSEs; the grade 4 is equivalent to grade C in other subjects. 24% of our students achieved passes at grade C or 5 in their EBacc subjects. We had many strong performances in individual subjects including: Drama, Spanish, Science, PE and Food and Nutrition.
On 1st June 2017, Claydon High school, East Bergholt High School and Hadleigh High School joined together to form a multi-academy trust - The South Suffolk Learning Trust.

The South Suffolk Learning Trust (led by an experienced board of local trustees) intends to grow and support the learning of Suffolk youngsters aged between 3 and 19 and add positively to improving life chances of Suffolk children through effective collaboration.
Headteachers Sarah Skinner, Colin Turner and Caroline Gibson are delighted to be formalising partnerships across schools and enabling an even wider number of children to reach their full potential.
