Re: Simon Balle

No real idea what's going on at Simon Balle but maybe it's just "one of those things", if you looked at the figures for Presdales, last year they were down to 79% (5+ A*-C GCSEs), this was a decline from 90% in 2011, a seemingly precipitous decline, however this year the figure is back up to 88%.
