“I’m delighted that the hard work of our sixth formers has paid off with some excellent results.  They are to be congratulated and many have achieved or exceeded their expectations which puts them in a strong position as they move towards their futures beyond school.  They will be the first to recognise the contributions of their teachers and parents who have helped them make the most of their abilities in achieving these results”.
