Nearly three quarters of exams were graded as A* to B and all 120 students passed every exam taken.

Headteacher Nick Law said the results were testament to the hard work of staff and students and the support of parents – with online learning during lockdown and personal support for students playing an important part in the success.

“These results have exceeded our expectations and are evidence of the terrific work done during the last two years,” said Mr Law.

We are enormously proud of what has been achieved and delighted to see the majority of students going to a university of choice or being successful in securing a great start in their chosen career.”
