Sue Freestone, principal of King’s Ely, said: “These results are fantastic. This resourceful and determined group of hard-working young adults, and the staff and parents who have supported them throughout their educational journey have done a first-rate job. We are very proud of them.”
Jane Thomas, vice-principal academic of King’s Ely, added: “This year group faced the challenges of new linear, reformed A Levels in all of their subjects.
