“French was a surprise as I don’t think I’m that good at it but I managed to get the grade so it was great.”

And Principal Delia Smith was quick to praise the current cohort for their achievements:

“This is a fantastic achievement and an improvement from last year,” she said.

“We are very pleased with the increased number of students achieving A*- Bs including English and Maths.

There were so many individual stand outs and what I’m really pleased about is what a strong Sixth Form we will have next year with so many of them joining us.”
