“Once again, we are delighted that the exam boards have validated all of the results our teachers awarded to students in the extremely challenging circumstances of the Teacher Assessed Grades process.

“We congratulate every one of our young people who worked diligently over the course of two years throughout periods of extended lockdowns, isolation and other disruption to their learning due to Covid-19.

“We look forward to welcoming a very high proportion of these students back to us into Sixth Form this autumn, and we wish every Year 11 leaver the very best for their next steps.”
