Last year, over 40% of our Year 13 students took up places to read a degree at Russell Group Universities and in 2019 47.5% of our A-level students achieved grades AAB or higher in at least two facilitating subjects. To complement their academic success, they offer a wide range of enrichment opportunities to all students as well as an incredibly supportive pastoral system. In addition to this, they are excited to announce a new Sixth Form block, equipped to the highest standards which is due to open in September 2021. 

Below is a link to a recording of their Q&A session for Sixth Form applicants that they ran just before half term.
