Pupils in year 9 and 10 have also completed some early GCSE's and First Certificates in Spanish, French, Finance and Religious Studies with excellent results. Mr. Brendan Wignall, Headmaster, said "These results are a credit to pupils, to their teachers and, of course, to their parents. I am always impressed with how our pupils manage to combine achieving an excellent academic record along with maintaining their valued contribution to the musical, dramatic and sporting life of the College. It is always a delight to receive such a well deserved, good set of results and I congratulate them."
