Deputy director of sixth form Phyllis O'Grady said: “This year group has worked tremendously hard and we are very proud of them.

They have worked with real enthusiasm and commitment over the years and have done a lot of extra-curricular work too.

We had 66 of our students pass the AQA Baccalaureate where they had to do three A-levels plus an AS level in critical thinking or citizenship and 100 hours of community action work.

Six of them got a distinction which meant they achieved As for their A-levels.

Twenty-three of our students also did an extended project qualification where they had to write 10,000 words on a subject of their choice and eight students did Open University modules.”
