"With all that has happened this year, to have achieved these results in the midst of lockdowns and disruption is absolutely wonderful.  We are so proud of the students for all the work they have put in to gain these results and prepare for the next exciting chapters of their lives.  These learners are amongst some of the most unique and fascinating young people we have worked with and we are so excited to see what they go on to achieve from here.  Well done to you all!"

"Once again, our learners have surpassed themselves. This has been the second disrupted year for our Year 11 learners at such an important time in their learning and yet, despite this, their commitment to showing us what they are capable of has been incredible.  They worked so hard on their return from the third lockdown, pulling out all the stops to show us their best work.  They are so very deserving of these results and I am incredibly proud of them all."

- Mrs Elkins, Headteacher
