Sixth Form success through adversity

After the first Covid-19 national lockdown students across the nation were awarded their centre assessed grades and were not required to sit summer external examinations.

Despite the disruption to their education in Year 13, 87% of our students are now studying for a degree at university, with 8% embarking on exciting apprenticeships, further education or work and the remaining 5% taking a gap year.


Unprecedented Oxbridge success

In a first for the school we take great pride in congratulating two Year 13 pupils who will now move on to study at Oxford and Cambridge this year.

  • Mohamed Omar attained A*A*A*A* in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy & Ethics. He will read Computer Science at the University of Cambridge (Christ's College)

Top tip from a top student:

Mohamed Omar: “You have to be willing to improve, listen to what went wrong and practice in these areas so that you can improve your weak points in a subject. Have the willingness to improve even if things look like they aren’t turning out well.
