“These GCSE students joined the college before the new school was built, when there was a time of uncertainly because we weren’t sure of securing funding. But the parents and the students kept their faith in us and now they have been repaid.

“I’d like to congratulate those students who are celebrating their results today. For many, these

grades are the stepping stone they need to enter our sixth form. They provide a sound foundation

for future employment and higher education.
“Over the past few years, we have become more academic and specialist in our approach so students are receiving good grades in subjects that will really help them in the future.
