"We are delighted that the hard work of your children and our teachers has been recognised by the Sunday Times. Our desire at Colyton Grammar School is to prepare our students for their next steps through a combination of scholarship and developing character. I am so proud of the summer's fantastic GCSE and A-level results and by our students who go on to thrive at university and in their careers.

"Of course, none of this could happen without the support of our exceptional cohort of parents. The results in the Sunday Times stand testament to the powerful triumvirate of you, your children and our team here at Colyton Grammar School."
