Mr Wignall, Headmaster said “It is a pleasure to see how well pupils have achieved and they are commended for their positive approach to their first experience of the full examination experience, having had the GCSEs interrupted by the pandemic. These results are a testament to their hard work and determination, to the diligence of their teachers and the constant support of parents. These pleasing A level results follow the excellent results in July for IB Diploma and BTEC.”
