Jason Lowe, director of sixth form, said: “We are delighted that, once again, the majority of students got into their first choice university. Today has been an absolute pleasure for us here at school.
“They have been an outstanding year group who have not only developed academically during their time here at Tarporley, but also personally, as individuals.
“Our students have contributed so much to the life of the school and to the local community, and are frequently praised for their mature approach, their teamwork and their leadership.
“Today is a fitting reward for all their hard work, supported by their families and the dedicated staff at the school. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them every success in their next pathway in life. We really will miss them all!”
