An outstanding 93% of our Year 13s had applied for university and the majority of the students achieved their first choice university. ▪ We have had some individual outstanding performances from some excellent students. Of those going on to university: ▪ Olivia Tinker achieved A*A*A plus A in the Extended Project Qualification (Cambridge University to read History), Sophie Humphries (Durham University to read Economics), Hannah Smith (Durham University to read Anthropology), Natasha McVey (Nottingham University to read Veterinary).
  15. 15. ▪ It is both reassuring and rewarding to know that all of our students are now destined to continue their education either at well-respected universities or entering the field of work. ▪ Success of the students was down to the hard work and determination of the students, and the strong support of parents, leaders, teachers and tutors. We have created a real family atmosphere in the sixth form centre where staff know every student well and can support their progress. ▪ We wish Year 13 all the best for the future and we now look welcoming you all as new Year 12’s.
