Principal Janice Hornby said: “I’d like to congratulate our Year 11s. They have had it tough because of the pandemic.
“Two years of disrupted education has been challenging for many of our students and their families. The impact of Covid should not be underestimated when we look at overall performance.
“I’m incredibly proud of this cohort who have dug deep and shown tremendous resilience to complete courses and achieve their results.
“We have had some terrific individual performances and I’m delighted to celebrate with those students today. I wish them all well.”
There were many happy students and parents picking up results.
Jessica Roche achieved an 8 in English Literature, 7 in English Language and sixes in Art and Design, History and Maths.
The effort paid off for Jessica, with mum Vicki.
“I’m very surprised but happy,” she said. “I thought I’d failed but these are great.”
She is going on to study Education Childcare at Franklin College.
Mum Vicki Smith said: “I knew she would do it. She’s put in so much effort. I promised I would not cry but I could not help it.
“She went to all the after-school sessions, Saturdays and holidays and deserves the results.”
George Binns achieved 9s in Maths and Chemistry, an 8 in Physics, 7s in Biology and History, 6 in English Language and 5 in Literature.

His plan was to do Business, Maths, Further Maths and Computer Science at Franklin before studying the latter at Leeds.

Dad Mark, who suffers from asthma, said Joe had done particularly well as he was absent from school for 18 months during Covid to protect him as he was shielding.

“He’s had a couple of disabilities but he has not allowed them to get in his way at all.”
Kian, going to Franklin College, said: “I can’t believe the results. I was scared before as I thought I’d failed the lot! I did not think I would get 9s.”
