As the first Times Educational Supplement Sixth Form College of the Year the College has a national reputation to maintain and I am very pleased it has done so.
Students continue to achieve grades which compare well with those in top independent schools or selective sixth forms in local schools. Our top 100 candidates achieved an amazing 97.2 % A*/A/B grades, 83.5 % A*/A grades and 37.9 % A* per A Level entry.
