Headteacher Joe Cowell, who will also leave the school this year, said: "The great joy for teachers at this time of year is to see the students that have worked so hard for the last two years fulfil their potential and win places at some of the best universities in the country.

"I am happy to report that the mood in the Sixth Form Centre today is one of elation, excitement and relief. This is a tribute to the hard work of all the students, the support given to them by their parents, and the dedication and commitment of their teachers."
