Our Sixth Form students and staff yet again have good reason to celebrate their exam success this year, with nearly 70% of all A level grades between A*-C.

In addition, Jordan Coxall will take up a sport scholarship in the USA.
Head of Sixth Form, Nick Gannon, praised the students' achievements, saying:
"Once again, we are very proud of our students and the results they have achieved this year. This is due to the hard work of both staff and students and support from parents."
Acting Headteacher, Damian Stenhouse, added:
"Based on previous results, we had high expectations of this Year Group and they have more than lived up to these with a strong set of results that will help them on their future paths, whether that be into employment or university.
It is a great credit to their determination, on-going resilience and continuing commitment to learning that they have not only met the demands of A level study, but have also achieved outstanding results.
We are obviously very proud of their achievements, and wish them happy and successful futures."
