In expressing his delight at the superb results, Principal Foncy McConnell, stated, “In achieving these excellent results at A Level, BTEC and AS level, our students should be extremely proud of their achievements.


Despite the unprecedented challenges of the past two academic years, our Post 16 students have produced brilliant results. This reflects their maturity, ambition and focus, the excellence of the teaching and guidance they have received, and the exceptional support of their parents. I wish them well, as they move on to the colleges and universities of their choice, and in their future careers.”
