Their excellent achievements reflect the hard work of the students and the strong partnership between themselves, staff and parents. We are extremely proud of the well-rounded individuals they have become. They have conducted themselves with grace, perseverance and courage and we look forward to seeing them continue to flourish in the future.”

Mr Richard Nicholson, Principal of Warwick Independent Schools Foundation, says: “This has been a tumultuous two years for Year 11 students. Our Foundation schools’ pupils have shown exceptional determination in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic and the impact that has had on the process for the awarding of GCSE grades.  Their results today are testament to their hard work and resilience, and the support of their teachers and families.  Our pupils are exceptionally well-prepared for their sixth form studies, and we look forward to starting that exciting journey with them in September.”
