Our students, teachers and support staff have shown tremendous resilience and flexibility in being able to respond to the challenges caused by the pandemic. All of our students have experienced disruption to their studies but have shown that, despite this, they have what it takes to get into the best universities, apprenticeships and jobs.
“We have more students going off to Russell group universities including University of Manchester, Warwick, Sheffield, Lancaster, Leeds, Durham, Kings College London, York, Exeter, Glasgow, Bristol and Newcastle and Arts Ed drama school in London.
