Headteacher, Michael Sutton, said: “I would like to congratulate all of our students on their results today. The vast majority have achieved their first choice university and we wish them all a successful and happy future.

“The hard work of students and staff over the last two years has certainly paid off. It was particularly pleasing to see how some students had managed to exceed their own expectations and achieve some phenomenal results.”
