Many congratulations to our Year 13 students who have reaped the rewards of their hard work over the last two years, gaining another set of excellent results.  With an average point score of 862 points per student (equivalent to three grade A's), our 138 students are ready to embark on the next stage of their young lives. 

Overwhelmingly, and despite much adverse publicity surrounding tuition fees, well over 80% of the cohort gained places at university with no fewer than 95 students securing places at their first choice university.  Studying a greater than ever range of subjects such as ancient history, Asian studies, chemical engineering, Hispanic studies, media make-up and medicine to zoology, they will be taking up places up and down the country from Edinburgh and Durham, down to Cambridge, Bristol and Falmouth.  Of those not going to university, some students will be taking up apprenticeships with firms such as BT and Ernst and Young with others employed in such diverse areas as the civil service, logistics and law sectors. 

We wish all our Year 13 leavers every success in their future endeavour and look forward to celebrating with them at the A Level Presentation Evening in December.
