 “Winterbourne students have again achieved some truly amazing results, helping us maintain our solid and consistent pattern of high achievement across multiple measures. Many students have scored top grades, exceeding national expectations in terms of their individual progress. This has of course been a trying year for all young people. We wholeheartedly commend Winterbourne 6th form students, not only for their impressive academic achievements which are celebrated here, but also their resilience in circumstances we would never have imagined or predicted a year ago. We wish them all the very best for the future and look forward to hearing from them again soon.”

I cannot overstate how proud I am of our students: the determination and resilience they have demonstrated during the past 5 months in particular is outstanding and humbling. I wish them all the best as they embark on their next chapter in their lives. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of their teachers for their commitment and dedication to the 6th form students over the past 2 years.”
