Director of sixth form, Chris Hardwell, said: “These outstanding results are a testament to the two years of dedication and hard work of our students. It was great to see so many smiling faces as they picked up their results.

“At a time when young people are under intense scrutiny and pressure, our students are achieving at an exceptional level. It is down to their hard work, the high standard of teaching and the excellent relationships between staff and students.”
