First, my congratulations to all the students who have received their A level results this morning. A levels are the culmination of 13 years in school and the key to the next stage of a young person’s life. The overwhelming majority of our students have been successful today in securing their place at their university of choice, or feeling secure in their decision to enter employment, knowing that they can pick up their studies later in their lives. Today is about the opportunities that have opened up for our students as a result of the grades that they have achieved.
Secondly, I want to thank the staff at the school for the high-quality teaching and support that they have given over the entire time that our students have been with us. We believe that the breadth of our students’ experience, particularly in their time in the sixth form, equips them very well for continued success, whatever they decide to do next in their lives.
