“Many congratulations both to our Sixth Formers and wider Sixth Form team on what is an exceptional set of A Level results. These results are a highly impressive display of the resilience and determination of our young people who, despite the challenges of the past few years, have remained entirely committed to their learning.
“Each year, our A Level results get stronger as more and more of our students are accepted onto outstanding degree courses. What is particularly important is ensuring that each young person goes on to study the right course for them and I am particularly pleased that this year we have such a great variety of university acceptances.
Assistant Principal, Roger Burton, stated these are:
“Testament to our students’ own hard work, as well as the enduring support of our staff, that so many students have achieved so highly. Thank you to the Sixth Form team and all supporting staff for the ongoing guidance and advice they have provided to our young people.”
“Our 2022 cohort have been fantastic role models to their peers across the school and I have no doubt that today’s results will serve to inspire our incoming Year 13 students. I am very much looking forward to watching our alumni continue to go from strength to strength as they enter the next stage of their education, or indeed the world of work. Congratulations once again to all those who are celebrating today.”
