Mark Avoth, Principal, said “It is important to bear in mind that our Year 13 students have had a very disrupted learning journey. Therefore, we just want to say how extremely proud we are of them all.  They have proved themselves to be mature, self-motivated individuals who have worked tirelessly to ensure the best possible future outcomes for themselves.  Congratulations to all the students who have been successful in progressing to the next stage of their life journey, in higher education or work-based training.  Thank you also to their teachers have worked very hard to support them during this challenging time.”

Mr Dean Taafe, Head of Sixth Form, said ‘I am extremely proud of our Year 13 cohort. They have achieved some excellent results and should be extremely proud of their achievements, especially given the circumstances leading up to them starting their level 3 qualifications. A quintessential part of education is to provide students with the platform to go into the real world and contribute to society. Our students have worked extremely hard under the guidance of our teachers, and that journey can now continue with many of our students going on to study fantastic degrees, apprenticeships and commence employment. It has been a pleasure helping them and we wish them all the best on this exciting journey.
