"You just cannot beat excellent teaching and exam preparation combined with terrific effort from our students.

"It is not an easy time to live with a teenager; the support that has been shown through attendance at revision events and ensuring their children have the right working environment at home has enabled our students to flourish and subsequently celebrate these wonderful results.
"The students are all set to start their sixth form education - an exciting time for them and us - we know they will continue to work hard and be a credit to the school.
"These results will allow our students to follow the path of their choice, whether that be to Oxbridge, a Russell Group University or a degree apprenticeship.
"We are all very proud."
