Headteacher Charlotte Marten said: "I’m absolutely delighted with these results. They are the fruit of a lot of hard work over the course of the last two years.

"What’s really wonderful is that students have done well across the board: their success is not confined to one or two subjects.

"Our students’ success is a testimony to their commitment to learning and to the skill of our experienced staff who have successfully guided them through the new specifications."
