Each student continues to achieve significantly above average progress from their secondary school starting points giving high levels of value added to every student.

Andy Platt, Head teacher comments ‘Once again we are so proud of our students’ outstanding achievements, recognised in the examination results today. It has been a privilege to witness such a fantastic cohort display a boundless energy for learning and a pioneering approach to their studies. Every student should be extremely proud of their remarkable achievements supported by our unrivalled pastoral care. The pressure on young people seems to rise from year to year but our students have shown bravery in their choices, commitment to their studies and resilience to challenges they face. I look forward to welcoming students back to the Sixth Form in September but for now wish all our students a wonderful summer break.’
