Headmaster Adrian Meadows was delighted that big changes to the A-Level system has not adversely affected the pupils’ outcomes.

He said: “These results show how well our students have coped with the changes presented to them and I congratulate them on their resilience and hard work.

“Whilst comparisons with previous years are technically not possible, I am extremely encouraged by our continued high achievements.”
