I would like to thank our staff, who continue to offer excellent teaching and tailored support to our students, and the families of our students, who have supported them through the exam season.”

A delighted Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Jennifer Burrough, explained: “Part of our success is due to the close family feel to our sixth form. We offer a clear support system which enables every student to receive the targeted help they need. It is this care and pride in all of our students that makes our sixth form unique.”
