A truly outstanding set of results sees students receiving one third of their graded entries at the highest A and A* standard with nearly two thirds of all grades awarded at A* to B.
Headteacher, Emma Yates said, “We are, once again, delighted and proud of our students’ achievements. Hayesfield Mixed Sixth Form offers an unique experience that fully prepares students for success at A Levels and for life beyond school. Students receive expert help and guidance on post-18 destinations and gain confidence from the expert knowledge and one-to-one support they receive from their teachers and tutor. Students’ hard work and talent, with the support of our committed staff have led to a tremendous set of results.”
