Many students are now gearing up to head off to university to follow their chosen path with others heading off for work or apprenticeships.

Lee Cummins, headteacher, said he was delighted with the Year 12 and 13 learners’ results.

He added: "The learners have again achieved a great set of results across the range of academic and vocational subjects we offer at the school. "Each year learners are out performing the previous year which is great to see however, the most important outcome for these results is that learners can fulfil their ambitions and I am delighted that so many are able to move onto university or other routes based on their stunning performance.

"The sixth form provision in the school continues to grow and develop and these results are testimony to the hard work of the learners and staff who have worked tirelessly to make them happen.
