Speaking about the college’s success this year, Director of Cowley Sixth Form College, Deborah Faulkner, commented: “We are incredibly proud of how our students have performed this year.

“They have all worked incredibly hard and their excellent results are extremely well deserved.

“After the exam cancellations in the previous two years due to COVID-19, this was the first opportunity for this cohort of students to complete formal examinations, but they have shown great determination and resilience and produced sterling performances.

“This year group have been excellent to work with. It has not been easy for them over the past couple of years, so I could not be any more pleased as we say goodbye and good luck to students who are armed with the results they need for the next steps in their journey.”
