All sixth formers at Bishop Laney Sixth Form achieved a pass standard or above in their courses.

100 per cent of students passed their technical, and applied courses at Level 3 this summer while almost half of the grades awarded were distinction or distinction* grades.

A number of students achieved particularly high results including Louis Dinn Scarrow who, alongside his D*D*D* achieved in sport and exercise science, secured an A* grade with his extended project, looking at the use of apps in supporting health care.

Tiegan Seymour and Kiera Emson both secured the highest achievable distinction grade in their Level 3 beauty therapy course, with Kiera also receiving a national accolade and the offer of a training bursary to continue her development.
