Gavin Ball, chief executive of the Wessex Learning Trust, said students should be ‘incredibly proud’ of their hard work and commitment over the past three years, especially in the face of such unprecedented circumstances.

Some exceptional performances include Tabitha Fuller who received 12 grade 9s and Abigail Campbell who achieved 13 grade 8s and above.

Alexander Cramp, Johannah Mathew and Billy Nash collected eleven grade 8s and above, and Maisie Sharp achieved 10 grade 8 and above.

Gavin Ball, who is also the outgoing executive headteacher, said: “Every student should feel proud of the work they have undertaken throughout their education to get to this point in time and the achievements they have made.
