Commenting on these results, Mr Wylie said: “While our pupils may not have obtained their results through the normal examination process, there should be no doubt that the grades achieved by the Class of 2021 are the result of the hard work, talent and ability of the students and the dedication and support of the school staff.

Asia Haraburda - 10 A*s.

“I congratulate each and every one of our pupils on their success. The excellent results they have achieved provide them with a passport to the next stage of their education and we look forward to welcoming the majority of them back into sixth form to begin their ‘A’ Level studies.”
