This maintains the tradition of high performance in a large sixth form, which enables the vast majority of students to take up their first choices at universities or work.

Headteacher Margaret Holman said: “The results are particularly pleasing, given the sustained performance over a wide range of challenging academic subjects.

“When we see so many happy students and staff rewarded for their very hard work over the past two years, it always makes this one of the most enjoyable days of the school year.”
