To see so many students achieving the very top grades across a variety of subjects shows the depth and breadth of our curriculum, and the quality and commitment of our teaching and support staff. The superb grades achieved by students will provide them with the academic currency to access exciting and promising futures. We are extremely proud of each and every one of our students, and we look forward to welcoming many of them back into our Sixth Form ahead of the new academic year as, they continue their studies with us.”
