Headteacher, Annmarie Whelan, commented “I am extremely proud of all our students who have worked very hard to achieve these exceptional results and it would not have been possible without the tremendous commitment from our highly professional teaching and support staff, and our excellent partnership with parents and carers.
We are a fully inclusive Sixth Form and, in the final year of the newly reformed A Levels and BTEC qualifications, to improve even further on the success of last year is incredible and just shows how phenomenally hard our students and staff have worked over the last 2 years and how they have risen to the many challenges presented in these more challenging qualifications. Students have shown true resilience and determination and really deserve the success they have achieved today and these results will open many doors for them.”
Mrs Jane Owens MBE, Chair of Governors would like to congratulate all students and thank staff for their hard work and support in maintaining such high standards in this period of challenging exam reform.
Congratulations and best wishes to all our students for the future.
