“Today we are immensely proud of the achievements of Barton Peveril students and we congratulate each and every one of them on their success. These are the best A Level results we have ever seen at Barton Peveril and it is the result of a great deal of hard work on the students’ part over the past two years.
“I'd like to pay tribute to the dedication and expertise of our staff and let's remember how parents, family and friends support students through the pressure of coursework and the exam period. Over three quarters of our leavers will be starting courses at University this year or next and all Barton students have been supported with their studies for a successful future.”
