“We are extremely proud of our students’ successes. I am particularly delighted to see their achievements across such a broad range of subjects. With our small class sizes and focus on individual needs and interests, we support our students through the rigours of our traditional yet wide-ranging A Level curriculum, and our students’ top grades are a testament to both their hard work and that of our teachers.”
Mrs Charlotte Tassell-Dent, Head of School, North Bridge House Senior Canonbury concludes:
“I am delighted with our students’ outstanding A Level results. These grades underline the hard work and determination each student has shown under challenging circumstances over the last few years. They represent many hours of work and incredible commitment from students, staff and parents alike. On behalf of all members of the school, I wish our Year 13 students every happiness in their future studies and chosen careers.”
