Overall, the results aligned with expectations with some fantastic success stories.

Macie Wheeler achieved an inspiring set of results, including 7s in English and history and a distinction* in textiles and has also decided to continue their studies at St John Bosco and will be heading into Year 12 in the autumn.
A large proportion of students have decided to remain at the school to complete their A-levels, which is undoubtedly a testament to the supportive and nurturing environment to school has worked so hard to create.
