“Congratulations to all our students who have been so positive and worked so hard to achieve their excellent results. Today, as our students stand tall with their A Level, vocational, and technical results in hand, we are reminded of the journey filled with dedication, late nights, and sheer perseverance. I am profoundly proud of each one of them for reaching this significant milestone. Today, we celebrate not just results, but the collective spirit of our Sixth Form College community.” 

 “With more than 50 academic, vocational , and technical courses studied, it is great to see that yet again as a college we have maintained our track record of excellence in A Level, Technical and Vocational education. We are proud to be the first College in the region to successfully introduce the new T Level programme.” 

 “The college is committed to giving all young people access to a top-class education and opportunities to progress and excel. Our priority remains to provide care and support to every young person so that they can achieve and progress to their full potential.” 

 “The progression of our students to employment, higher-level apprenticeships, Oxbridge, Medicine, and Veterinary Science Schools and other prestigious universities remains excellent.” 

“The vast majority of our students will be pleased with their results and progression choices. We will also continue to support our students, providing them with access to our expert careers team. On results day, universities will be available in the building to offer advice and guidance.”  

“Finally, I would also like to acknowledge the work and commitment of all the staff at the College, who have played a significant part in helping to prepare and support students in order that they achieve their full potential.”  

I extend my deepest gratitude to our exceptional staff and ever-supportive parents, for without your unwavering commitment and belief, this success would not have been possible.
