Jade Deamer said: “I’m really happy with my results, I just wanted to get the grades I needed to get into Hitchin Girls sixth-form, which I did.” Jade hopes to study psychology, sociology, health and social care, and photography.

Headteacher Debbie Upton said: “I congratulate all of our staff and students for their hard work particularly in the face of the ‘volatile results’ nationwide. Provisionally our 5A* to C including English and Maths figure stands at 45% and we expect an improvement upon this with the requests for re-marks on the students who narrowly missed the grade C.​”
