Manor School Sixth Form goes from strength to strength

Manor School is exceptionally proud of our students who continue to make strong progress in our growing Sixth Form. Ofqual grades released today show excellent outcomes and progress. The investment in facilities, resources, leadership and curriculum is paying dividends. Of the awarded grades, 26% of grades were A*/A. All students who applied for a university course have been offered their first or second choice course and university.

Jay Davenport, Principal, said “In spite of the turbulent circumstances this year, we would like to congratulate all our students for their individual successes. Although students did not have the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and understanding in final examinations, the significant evidence used to determine their grades released today are testament to their hard work and tremendous effort over their seven year journey in secondary education. We acknowledge the continued support from parents and carers and the dedication and commitment from all of our staff.”

Many students achieved excellent grades and have been successful in their next destination. Amongst these, stand out performances worthy of recognition include:
