Headteacher Dee Elliot praised the hardworking students and staff after the school achieved a 31 per cent pass rate for A*-A grades.

She said: “They are the best results we’ve ever had. It’s absolutely amazing.

“We’ve got students going to medical school and to Cambridge as well as to apprenticeships. It’s been a great year group.

“We’re slightly smaller than other sixth forms and that really comes through because staff know students and can really give them tailored support.
