Danielle Lawler, associate assistant headteacher at Maricourt, said: “We took friends Mary, Kate, Megan, Amy, Louis and Reece on an Oxbridge trip in Year 12, today they celebrated with 11 A*s and five As between them. This shows how important university trips can be in helping raise aspirations.
“There were lots of outstanding results, but the best achievement of all, was how they waited around to support each other and celebrate together.
“Parents were keen to join in the fun and we cannot thank them enough for their support. The students went on to celebrate over breakfast together.
“Well done to all Year 13 students, we are so proud of you all, we will miss you and look forward to catching up next term to hear about your new adventures.”
