Commenting on the day, Clare Cassidy, Principal at Sedgehill Academy, said:  

“It has been a pleasure to celebrate with our Year 13s today, knowing just how hard they have worked towards these qualifications. They have shown high levels of maturity and resilience across their studies, amidst the challenges of a pandemic, and this has shone through in what they have achieved.

“It is particularly gratifying to see so many of the group achieve their first choice university places and I know how excited we all are to follow their careers over the coming years. We all wish them well as they take these next steps with confidence.”
