We are very proud of them and very pleased to see increased success in so many of our subjects. These results are testament to the hard work and dedication of our students and staff.
“Many of our students are now progressing on to some of the country’s top universities, studying degrees from Medicine to Aerospace Engineering, whilst others go into employment or apprenticeships, and we are delighted that they will all take with them the confidence, knowledge and skills they have acquired during their time with us.
“Our new Sixth Form campus will start to be constructed in the coming weeks and this will provide a first class learning environment for our students as we continue to invest in the young people of Barnsley.”
