A Level Results Success

We are extremely pleased to report some outstanding achievements by our Sixth Form students in their academic and vocational A levels this summer. Students have worked very hard under difficult circumstances to reach their full potential and we are very proud of their achievements.

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

It is very difficult to single out individuals as all of our students deserve credit but here are a few examples of the achievements of some our outstanding sixth form cohort:

Mrs Fionula Flaherty, the Head of Sixth Form said: ‘Congratulations go to all our students who, without exception, came back to school out of lockdown with renewed determination to achieve the best grades they could.

We are very proud of them all and wish them well as they embark upon a wide variety of future pathways.’

Mrs Debbie McGloin, Headteacher said: “We are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year.
