It has been another hugely successful morning for Stanwell 6th form pupils as they received their A level and AS examination results. Year 13 Tutor, Mr Owen Flatley commented, “we are delighted that so many of our students have excelled this year and wish them every happiness as they move on to the next stages of their lives. The students, sixth form team and subject teachers worked so diligently to prepare for these examinations and it is great to see that this hard work has been rewarded with another set of superb results.”
