Whilst is it important to celebrate our top achievers we also recognise the efforts of all our students many of whom have surpassed their target grades and have been able to secure places in prestigious Russell Groups & other Specialised universities or on Apprenticeship schemes that they are very well prepared to undertake. Other decisions are based around the choice to undertake a gap year which can provide valuable experiences and enhanced skills to compliment degree level study. Whatever their destinations we wish our ‘Class of 2018’ every success in their selected pathways and careers thereafter. We would also thank all our dedicated staff that go that extra mile to inspire our students and to parents for their continued support.
