Official statement, issued by principal Glenn Smith this morning.

Once again we are delighted with the examination results achieved by all our students.

A number of students have successfully achieved their university places, which is commendable when places are limited and at a premium.

We are proud of the success of all our students, but several students have achieved outstanding academic standards:

Jack Dixon achieved A*, A, A, A and will be reading History at Nottingham University. Jack achieved A* in English Literature and Grade A’s in History, Media Studies and Sociology.

Daniel Paterson also achieved A*, A, A, A and will be reading Pharmacy at Bath University. Daniel achieved A* in Biology and Grade A’s in Chemistry, Mathematics and Further Mathematics.

Kerry-Ann Upham also achieved the new A* in Sports Science and will be reading Bio-Medical Science at University.

Several students will be travelling in their Gap year, before University, while others have been fortunate to be moving directly into employment such as Jessica Evans who has been accepted onto an Accountancy Apprenticeship in Exeter. Some students will be gaining additional Work Experience before applying to University next year, such as Jenny Robinson for Midwifery and Sam Turl who wants to become a Paramedic.
