“Their GCSE and BTEC results today reflect a huge amount of dedication and hard work, during very testing times.

“As a school we are proud of all our students, some of whom have endured great personal challenges over the last two years. We are particularly pleased to see a significant number of grades 7, 8 and 9 in a range of subjects, and Distinction and Distinction Stars in our BTEC subjects.

“This reflected the hard work of our students, the support from their families, and the high quality teaching and support in school.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has played a part in helping our students reach this important milestone in their education.”
