Barnwell headteacher Tony Fitzpatrick says he is ‘extremely proud’ to be part of the Stevenage school’s success after A-level results were on the up again.

The school’s A-level pass rate at A*-E was 98 per cent, up five per cent on 2015, while the average grade at BTEC was Distinction*.

“The ‘Good’ judgement we received earlier this year by Ofsted for our sixth form has certainly been validated,” said Mr Fitzpatrick.

“Results at the school just continue to improve year on year and I am so happy for the numerous students who will be going off to university and apprenticeships this year.

“The success of our students is down to their own hard work, the support of their parents and the dedication of our staff.

“These are exciting times and I am extremely proud to be part of Barnwell’s ongoing success.”

Chair of governors Mel Edwards added: “The governing body and the staff of Barnwell School are immensely proud of the achievement of our sixth form students.
