Head of school Mark Bedford said:

“Cumbrian schools are proud to serve our children, their families and the communities they come from. Over the last two years due to the Covid 19 pandemic this, for sustained periods has been a trying time, for both students and staff. The achievements of the students are all the more special given the challenges they faced while studying over the last two years. We congratulate them all on the manner in which they have coped in these quite extraordinary times.”

“The majority of students will be pleased with their results and will have the keys to go onto to their anticipated destinations in September. Their results reflect their hard work, their dedication and the support they received from their teachers and families.”

“The adaptations to the exam series this year has allowed for the students to take their exams in a manner as close to a normal year as possible. Whilst these changes were not always ideal, the students should be rightly proud of their grades and should in no way think they are diminished by the small number of changes they were afforded.”

“We congratulate all the young people on their achievements today and wish them all every success in the future.”
