Headteacher David Curry said: “It is our best set of results ever and shows that Bishop Heber High School continues to prepare its students for the challenges of A-level and beyond.

“This is a wonderful achievement for both students and staff, and is testimony to their hard work and commitment. I would like to congratulate all our students on their success. The hard work of the students themselves, together with the excellent teaching of my colleagues and the support of the students’ families has led to these outstanding results. Our director of learning/sixth form Simon Woodward is looking forward to welcoming most of our Year 11 back to our sixth form to continue their education at Heber.

“Our very good sixth form results reported last week, together with these very impressive results continue to demonstrate that Bishop Heber High School offers exciting and successful learning opportunities for young people. For those of our students who will be seeking training, employment or college opportunities we wish them well in their future and thank them for their enormous contribution to our school throughout their five years at Heber”.
