Head of School, Anne-Louise Payne, said "These fantastic results are testament to the hard work and commitment our students have shown throughout this academic year. Since joining The Howard Partnership Trust, a little over one year ago, we have introduced more aspirational targets and I am very proud that the students have clearly risen to the challenge! Improved attitudes to learning, support from parents, and the hard work and dedication of staff have resulted in more students being able to access both A Level and vocational pathways.”
