“We are really pleased with these results, which reflect so well on the hard work and dedication of our students over the past two years,” says Principal Mark Jones. “It is also, of course, a huge testament to the dedication of our staff who are tireless in their support of our learners both in and outside of the classroom.”
And for any students who are unsure what to do next after their results, Mark has the following advice:
“Come and talk to us! We have lots of staff at the College who can provide advice and guidance on potential next steps for individual learners.
