“Yet another fantastic set of results for our students. National predictions were that results would be lower this summer following the removal of modular exams in January, so we are absolutely delighted that our students have produced our best ever set of results,” commented Alexa Davies, Director of Learning Post 16. “This was achieved by the hard work and dedication of the students, the excellent support they receive from our teaching staff and their families. Our staff has worked tirelessly to support our students by offering outstanding lessons and a whole array of revision sessions outside of school hours.”
“These are our best results for the eighth year in a row and these results have allowed 98% of students to progress to their chosen place of study or employment. This includes the best universities in the land, including Oxford, Bristol, Durham and Edinburgh. We have joined an elite group of inclusive schools that significantly out-perform national averages.” Davies continued. “In addition to their academic success, they have also played a huge part in the life of our school and local community and leave us as mature, caring and committed young adults. We wish them every success in their futures,” she concluded.
