“Our pupils have shown fantastic resilience, creativity and determination to focus on their studies during remote learning and fully deserve the grades they have obtained.”

Retiring assistant rector (academic) Peter Lovegrove added: “In a year like no other, which has thrown up very considerable challenges to pupils and staff, it is excellent to see the pupils maintaining the very high academic standards for which the school has always been known.”
