Paul Gamble, Headteacher, commented, “We are delighted with these results. They are comfortably our best ever and they reflect just how hard learners and staff have worked to ensure that they achieved such excellent outcomes. The standard of teaching and learning in our Sixth Form is truly impressive and continues to improve. This is underlined by our incredible AS-level outcomes for Year 12 with 75% of grades at A*-C and 100% at A*-E. These indicate just how well this cohort are doing and that we should be expecting even stronger A-level results next year. I’d like to thank all of those involved.”

Kevin Patel, Head of Sixth Form, said he was “delighted with the results. This group of young people showed dedication and determination throughout their studies and they are now reaping the rewards. They have been supported and tutored by an incredibly talented team of teaching and support staff whose efforts are clear to see. We are a small sixth form where teachers know learners really well, meaning they get the individual support they need to achieve excellent outcomes.” He added “100% of our Sixth Form learners have made successful applications to universities across the country and these results will ensure they are all able to take up these places. I am so proud of every single one of them.”
