"In addition, the number of students achieving grades A* - C has risen significantly since last year, which is testament to their dedication, perseverance and hard work. I wish them all the best for the next steps in their careers, whether that be further study, training or employment.”
One notable success was Phoebe Cox, of Emneth, who achieved a brilliant AAC result in English, sociology and biology, respectively.
