“We are delighted with our A level results this year and are immensely proud of the achievements of all of our students. We are really pleased to see so many of our students succeed in gaining access to their first choice destination, whether this is at university, a professional apprenticeship or employment. We are very proud of those students who have achieved competitive university places. The whole year group have given a great deal to the school and I wish them every success in the future. Congratulations are due to a terrific group of students and their teachers who worked so hard to achieve these amazing results”.
