Students and staff from the Whitgift Foundation’s three leading independent schools in Croydon are celebrating another year of academic excellence after collecting their A level results today.

Martin Corney, Chief Executive, The Whitgift Foundation said:

“A level results day is an incredibly important time for our students as they look ahead to their futures beyond the school community. I am extremely proud of each and every student who has worked so hard to achieve the outstanding academic results we’ve seen this year.

This year’s results once again reflect the hard work, dedication and passion that our teaching staff bring to the schools every day, preparing our students for the future and inspiring them to reach their goals.

I wish all of our students every success as they turn to the next chapter of their lives, whether that’s taking up a place at university, taking a gap year or entering the world of work.”
