Headteacher, Angie Francis, said: “I congratulate the students on their results and wish them much success and happiness in their future endeavours. These results will open up many exciting opportunities for them. Students continue to make exceptional progress at our school, due in no small part to the high level of support given by staff and the aspirational ethos of the school.”

There are many individual success stories. Two students have gained places at ‘Oxbridge’, with Emma Gatenby going to Cambridge to study Linguistics, and Ben Stevenson heading to Oxford to study English Literature, and most students gaining places at the university of their choice.
