“We are pleased with the continuing upward trend these results show. We are now looking forward to launching the innovative new post-16 renaissance partnership with North Hertfordshire College and the Da Vinci Studio Schools next month. With the huge number of talented and hard-working students and staff across the partnership we will be able to offer outstanding A-Level provision for our community.”
