Head of College Lizzie Bolton said, “We are absolutely delighted for the students, the vast majority of whom have worked really hard to gain these qualifications. Almost everyone will gain a place at the University of their choice and whilst there have once again been some notable academic successes (see below), we are really proud of all the students who achieved better than expected grades.”

Executive Headteacher, James Kibble added, “Once again the hard work of the students, the tireless support of parents and the dedication of the inspirational staff at Salesian have come together to great effect. Our ambition is to ensure that every student leaving us is best equipped to go out into the world and make it a better place and the results these young people have gained will afford them excellent opportunities to do just that.”

Salesian School and Sixth Form College are part of the Xavier Catholic Education Trust. The school identifies the support of and collaboration within the trust as a significant factor in its success. The trust’s CEO, Ani Magill said, “I’m so proud of all the students within Xavier for achieving such great results. We are very blessed to have such great teachers in both our secondary schools and I would like to pass on my congratulations and thanks to them for all the support they give to all our students; a great day for everyone!”
