Headteacher Jed Whelan said: “I am absolutely thrilled with our results. Our students have risen to the challenge of competing for courses at the top universities and they have secured their places. The hard work of every student is reflected in the grades they have achieved. I am particularly pleased that many students, across the ability range, have surpassed expectation and achieved higher grades than expected. All of the students and their dedicated teachers can be proud of what they have achieved together.”
