Headteacher Anna Feltham, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating such fantastic results. Our students displayed outstanding commitment and determination when facing the challenges of the new A-level and BTEC exams. It is great to see that all of the hard work from students and our amazing staff has paid off.”
