“It’s pleasing to see success despite this backdrop of national uncertainty – and we are just as proud of those students who have achieved four A*s and are heading to Cambridge as we are of those who have achieved two Cs and have assured a placed on their chosen vocational course.”

Mr Palmer continued: “St Chris has a strong tradition of celebrating students as individuals, and a St Chris education is about so much more than just academic achievement.

“I am confident that this year’s leavers are well-rounded and resourceful, have a strong social conscience and moral courage, and that they leave the school with the skills and confidence to thrive in the modern world.”
