Thursday, August 18th, 2016



We are absolutely delighted that the hard work and efforts of our students in year 13 have paid dividends this year with students achieving excellent results. Over half of all entries achieved an A*-B grade and we saw continued improvements at  A or A*.  Our students’ results have continued to improve this year and we are thrilled that this will allow students the best platform for their next steps in their future.

It has been a real pleasure celebrating their successes with them, collecting their results this morning and seeing them reap the benefits of their hard work, extra hours and exam preparation.  It is a privilege watching our students realise that they have secured a place at the university of their choice, be it Oxford, Nottingham, Newcastle or more locally in Leeds or Huddersfield.

We wish all of our students the very best for their future in whatever they choose to undertake. We hope that they will keep in touch and come back and share their future successes with us in the months and  years to come.
