I am so glad they have been awarded the grades we feel they deserve.

"As a rapidly improving school their achievements should be recognised.”

Principal Carly Waterman said: “We are incredibly proud of the way our year 11 have navigated these tricky times and we’re so pleased they have been given grades that reflect their efforts. Huge thanks must go to the parents and carers, the teachers and the school staff who have worked so hard to support year 11.

"We are particularly pleased that all students are taking their chosen next steps and that so many have chosen to stay with us to study A Levels and level 3 vocational subjects.”

Chief executive of the David Ross Education Trust Stuart Burns said: “As well as my congratulations to each and every student, I want to pay tribute to our staff – none of this would have been possible without their outstanding support and tireless work to guide our students safely through the trials and tribulations of the recent months.”
