Headteacher Matt Allman said: “The results are a real testimony to our more personalised approach and our careful mentoring, aspirational work, and new facilities.

“We believe we are a unique local provider and, with the results being the best we have achieved, there is lots to celebrate.

“We are delighted for the students, staff and families who have put in all the effort that has reaped these rewards.”

Carrie Cain, assistant headteacher, added: “Perhaps the biggest thrill is that we have radically altered our provision and it is fantastic to see the changes have brought such success – whether it be the new Oxbridge Scheme getting two confirmed places, the tough new vocational courses scoring well, or the glowing reviews from local employers after summer work placements.

“The Saturday Schools, university partnership work and community events have all proved so very worthwhile.”
