All students who have chosen to do so have won a place on a degree course and we are confident that all our students leaving school this summer can look forward to a very bright future. This year group is the last to have been in the predecessor school and achieved top 5% progress at GCSE; they have succeeded not only in their academic goals but have grown beautifully into caring, moral and hard working adults.
