“We are all thrilled we have maintained the very high standards set by previous years and once again we will be seeing hard working students rewarded with places at the best universities in the country.

“Special mention should be made of Alex Cartin, previously of Hameldon Community College, who achieved straight As in all his subjects and is going on to study robotics at Sheffield University. Rhys Mossop, formerly of Unity College, achieved excellent results in all his subjects – including an A* in creative writing – and is going on to read social anthropology at Manchester University.

“Rachel Bolt – formerly of Sir John Thursby Community College – achieved excellent results in all her subjects and is going on to study drama at Manchester University.”
