After a morning of lessons, the Sixth Formers attended a celebration assembly led by Head of Sixth Form Mr Andy Cole, who shared anecdotes and videos from across the years, which for many of the students began at age 11 when they joined the school as year 7s.

He said: "The students have faced numerous challenges, but have done so with incredible grit and determination to succeed."
