Staff at Churchill Academy and Sixth Form enjoyed celebrating the achievements of students as they picked up their exam results today (Tuesday). 

The school said the year group has ‘excelled in their independence, drive and determination in the face of unprecedented circumstances’. 

Headteacher, Chris Hildrew said: “At the end of a year characterised by uncertainty and difficulty, I am delighted to see so many of our students succeed. We owe a debt of gratitude to all our staff, who continued to provide an exceptional education throughout successive lockdowns, as well as taking on the task of assessing student performance normally undertaken by the exam boards.  

“But above all, these results are a credit to our students who’ve shown immense determination throughout their time at Churchill, and especially through the pandemic. They have shown us just what they are capable of, and it’s exciting to think about what they will go onto achieve next. We are really proud of them, and proud that Churchill has been able to provide a fantastic foundation for them to continue to grow.”
