The school also said it is particularly appreciative of the efforts of all staff, parents, and governors who have helped its students secure excellent pathways and possibilities despite unprecedented challenges, not least the Covid pandemic.

"We are pleased to have so many of our students returning to our vibrant Sixth Form, alongside a number of collaborative and external applicants. We extend our warmest congratulations to all learners and thanks to all those who have played a part in their educational journey."
