As university offers keep rolling in for our students, we are busy collating all the results and helping them navigate their way in making the best choices. We wanted to share this good news, as well as a statement from our Principal, Tim Naylor:

The percentage of A*- B grades this summer was almost 79%, 

23% higher than the national average 

“We are thrilled to see the exceptional results our students have achieved in a challenging and disrupted year. They faced innumerable challenges since the lockdown in March, yet have overcome them to produce impressive results. We are grateful for their hard work, for their parents’ support during this time, and for our educational leaders’ expertise and dedicated pastoral care to keep the students motivated as we moved temporarily to online lessons.
“Few of our students’ grades were adjusted and our robust approach to continuity of teaching and assessment over the lockdown period meant we were in a strong position. With 87% of our students progressing to their first-choice university and 68% of our students gaining places at Russell Group universities, we couldn’t be more proud of their achievements.
“With varied university places achieved – such as Medicine at Sheffield, Veterinary Medicine at Nottingham, History of Art Edinburgh, Pharmacy at Cardiff and Economics at Nottingham – our students are well on their way to promising careers in the future. We wish them every success and continue to offer support to all who are unsure of the next steps to take with the help of our expert guidance and flexible options.”
