Students received their 2022 A Level results today and Headteacher Mr McAree affirmed:

“The students receiving their exam results today deserve a massive amount of credit for completing their courses having navigated successfully the disruption caused by Covid. As a cohort, this is the first time they have sat full external exams, having been denied the chance to do so for their GCSEs. This will have made the experience a little more difficult and certainly more daunting for many of them. We congratulate them all on the manner in which they have coped with the challenges that they have faced.”

“The vast majority of students will be pleased with their results as they reflect the high levels of effort and standards they have been achieving throughout their studies, and they will be able to go onto to their anticipated destinations this Autumn.”

“As a school, we are extremely pleased with the range of destinations our students have achieved this year. The vast majority of the year group will be progressing to university while others are progressing on to high quality degree level apprenticeships, with a small number taking gap years. Our students will be attending a wide spectrum of universities as always, many attending Russell Group Universities, or other high achieving specialist institutions for the arts and institutions abroad. The range of courses students will be reading is extensive, ranging from subjects such as Physics, Astrophysics, Economics, Architecture, Law and Maths, as well as degrees in the arts and music. The range and diversity in the courses and destinations will continue to inspire our current students to be outward looking as they work towards following their own high aspirations.”
