Stuart Edwards, Principal of Midhurst Rother College, said:
“I would like to congratulate all of our students who are celebrating today and wish them well for the future. There are some excellent results which are testament to the students’ hard work and the dedication of our staff here at Midhurst Rother College who encourage them and help them make the right decisions on which subjects will suit them best.
“The Sixth Form plays such an important role in our school and sets the tone and aspirations for the younger students so, once again, it is inspiring for everyone to see our Sixth Formers achieve such impressive results. Across the Sixth Form, subjects such as maths and English did particularly well and the importance of this success cascades down to the years below.
“It’s important, however, that our young people leave here not only with the academic qualifications they need but also with a set of wider personal and interpersonal skills that will assist them throughout their adult lives. Our students take huge pride in themselves and in their school and we are equally proud of them and their achievements.”
