James Wilson, Principal at Bacon’s College, said:
“It is always a proud moment to see our Sixth Formers receive their final grades and take up their university offers, but it is particularly so this summer given the challenges of the past 18 months. Our Year 13s have shown remarkable grit and determination across their studies and have continued to act as excellent role models for our younger year groups. I know that all our staff will want to join me in wishing them the best of luck as they progress into university and the world of work, beginning what I am sure will be very successful, happy lives and careers.”
