Tricia Kelleher, principal of the Stephen Perse Foundation said: “These are exceptional A Level and IB results and our students should be very proud of themselves. They display a great work ethic and this, combined with determination and passion, will help them to go on to great things in an increasingly competitive global workplace - we only have to look at the recent achievements of our young national sportswomen and sportsmen to know that this is true.
"As a school with a long history of high academic achievement, it is exciting to see our students moving on to such a broad range of destinations and courses including Engineering, Medicine, Psychology, Liberal Arts, Chinese, History, Law, French and Russian, and many more. Much of this achievement is down to our excellent teaching staff, whose own work ethic, determination and passion is passed on to their students.”
