Headteacher Des Bird said:
“This cohort of students have had to deal with very difficult circumstances throughout years 10 and 11. The grades which students have received today are the result of teacher assessed grades based on numerous robust assessments. Students have had to work exceptionally hard to achieve these grades and we are delighted with the many successes of our students. A record number of our students will be continuing their studies with us at West Coast Sixth Form in September. Students who are going on to education, training or employment elsewhere leave us with our very best wishes.”
