The school said special congratulations went to Eilidh Bodfish with 12A*s, Chris Bright who got 5A*s, 5As and 1 B and Sarah Stearne who got 11 A*s.

Meanwhile, Annabel Ankers got 1A*, 9 As and 1 B, Zakary Buras-Stubbs achieved 10A*s and 2As, Sophie Clayton got 3A*s and 7As and Hannah Howell got 5A*s, 4 As and 1 B.

Deputy headteacher Liam Martin said: “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all our students who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and to thank their families for all the support they have given over the last five years.

“I would also like to offer my thanks to our dedicated staff who have worked incredibly hard to enable all of our students to achieve. As an outstanding school, we are extremely proud that every single student has passed in excess of 5 GCSEs, enabling all to progress either to A Level study here at our Sixth Form College, or to pursue their chosen college and training courses.”
