Stuart Edwards, Principal of MRC, said: “I am delighted that so many of our students have secured places at their first choice universities.

“They have worked very hard over their time in our Sixth Form and deserve to be able to progress on to further and higher education and follow their careers of choice.

“Each of our Sixth Formers has made a very positive contribution to the College Sixth Form making it such a thriving, inclusive and enjoyable place to be.

“Over the past few years, our Sixth Form has grown to become such a key element of the College’s success and is increasingly popular amongst our students and those joining us from other schools.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our new Sixth Form cohort in September, offering them a wide range of exciting, stimulating and high-quality opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.”
