After a turbulent time for all students over the past two years working through the Covid-19 pandemic, the cancelling of national exams for the second consecutive year, the enforced closure of education providers resulting in a learning experience where a significant proportion has been delivered online and the establishment of teacher assessed grades across academic, and technical qualifications, we are pleased for our students on their overall performance and in securing positive destinations for their future.
