St John Starkie, Director of Sixth Form said “We are very proud of this level of exceptional performance and the tenacity and resilience of all of our students; some of which have overcome very challenging personal circumstances this year. These results are testament to the hard work of our students and the staff that have supported them so diligently this year. The combination of strong pastoral support, excellent teaching and opportunities to experience some ‘fun’ along the way has resulted in Alexandra Park Sixth Form students aspiring to be the very best and succeeding. Well done!”
“I could not be more proud of the achievements of our students and the dedication shown by our staff,” said the Director of Studies Mo Julian. “The Sixth Form continues to be successful in a broad range of academic, creative and vocational courses. Providing a broad curriculum to a diverse and large student body is central to our core beliefs and it is very satisfying to see them being successful.
“It is also very clear from these results that our focus on quality teaching by expert subject specialists, together with a culture of hard work and high expectations provide an environment where students can thrive and realise their full potential. With these qualifications, they have opened many and varied doors to life beyond Alexandra Park Sixth Form. This success is also down to the fantastic support the students receive from their parents and the wider community connected with the school. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the students for their hard academic work, thank them for their contributions to the wider school community and wish them every success for their collective futures.”
