Two students are moving to the newer T Level vocational courses, with the remaining 80 per cent of Year 11 moving to studies at college or sixth form.
Students have been confident in choosing courses out of county, as well as at local institutions.
They reported how pleased and proud they were, with many wanting to pass on their gratitude to teachers and staff at the school. It was a wonderful opportunity for the school to celebrate success.
‘We are extremely proud of all the hard work and awesome achievements of our students.’ said Headteacher Jen Jacklin. ‘After what has been a disrupted and difficult time, our students have risen to the challenge and demonstrated resilience and commitment to their success. As a school, we congratulate each and every student for their individual success and send our very best wishes for their future studies.
‘The improvement since the last set of formal exams in 2019 is both significant and exciting, and demonstrates what a rapidly improving school King Arthur’s is. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to support students to ensure they could achieve and take their next steps. As always, we will be thrilled to hear what our students achieve in the future and look forward to them joining our school alumni so we can stay in touch.’
