Caroline Taggart, Deputy Head of Sixth Form said
“This year group have been fantastic to see grow over the last two years. Many of them overcoming adversity and remaining resilient when things got tough. We are so pleased and proud that many students are now going to their first choice of university and others have secured some exciting apprenticeships starting in just a few weeks. I want to wish every student the very best with their next steps and they will be really missed!”
Mark Bridges, Head of Sixth Form, said:
“In a period of change and challenge within the exam system, I could not be happier and I’m very proud of how our students have done. They have added a great deal to the school and are a credit to themselves and their parents. I wish them all the best for the future and look forward to hearing what they get up to as they move onto new adventures.”
