Leon Hogan, Head of Sixth Form said ´We are delighted for our students. These grades are a result of the hard work of, and commitment from, staff, parents and most of all the students who have dedicated themselves to their studies. Numbers joining our Sixth Form continue to increase year on year, with our own students returning after completing their GCSEs and students joining from other schools. This is testament to
how successful our A-Level students are. Our results today are excellent and for those students who have now completed their education at SPH I would like to wish them every success in the future, they are always welcome back and will a part of our SPH family forever.´
