Head of Sixth Form, Amy Withers is ‘delighted with these results; our students are central to everything that we do and we celebrate each individual performance. They have been a wonderful group of young people to work with over the past two years and I am so pleased to share their achievements with them today. Many of our students have overcome challenges and faced adversity on their journey towards these outcomes. We could not be prouder of them and I wish them every success in their next steps.’
Alan Salt, Principal, would like to congratulate all students and staff for their hard work and efforts "These students have worked incredibly hard, especially as this cohort were sitting their first ever public exams. I am incredibly proud of the efforts of all our students; those who have achieved top grades as well as those who have fought hard for their pass grades. I wish them all well in their exciting futures and look forward to hearing of their ongoing success."

“Congratulations to all students for their achievements. Hard work brings rewards. It is important to remember that these young people had their final years of study set against the backdrop of a pandemic. We all commend them and their teachers for overcoming the disruption and the difficulties to get here. Most students completing their 16-19 studies in 2023 will not have sat a formal exam before this year.
In analysing this year’s results, it’s important to remember that the return to roughly pre-pandemic grading means that these results are naturally lower than those in the three years since 2019.”
