Students at TWA have been celebrating successful GCSE results that put them in good stead for exciting futures at West Coast Sixth Form and beyond.  It was a morning of smiles as students and staff celebrated the culmination in two years of hard work, overcoming the challenges that lockdowns and remote learning presented them at the start of their courses.

Nigel Youngman Headteacher said:

“Students have every reason to be proud of their results. What has made today so special is seeing staff waiting enthusiastically to see their students open their results. Staff and students have worked hard together to make sure the results were the best they

could be. Saturday sessions, holiday revision and diligent planning for teaching mean students can feel proud today.”
