Head of Sixth Form and Assistant Headteacher, Mr Richards, said:
“We are delighted that once again so many of our students have progressed on to top universities and courses, for example, Thiviyuhan will attend Cambridge to study Medicine, as well as Chelsie, Maria and Krisha to UCL to study Pharmacology, Astrophysics and Arts & Sciences respectively.
As in past years, more than double the national average number of students are leaving us to join top Russell Group universities, but we also have students such as Sahib leaving us to join top apprenticeship programmes with the likes of British Airways.
The quality of students’ results and their final destinations is a testament to their own hard work and co-operation with staff, as well as the skilled guidance and encouragement of their teachers, tutors, and parents, all of which we are most grateful for and have contributed to these excellent outcomes."
