Students Making the Most Progress

As well as students who achieve the top grades, many other students excel in our Sixth Form and exceed our high expectations. We congratulate these students on their courage and work ethic. Here are just a few who made the most progress:

Headteacher, Tim Litchfield said: "I am truly delighted with the students’ outstanding results! Supported by their parents and their extremely dedicated, inspirational teachers, our students have worked with great determination to exceed our expectations and are now heading off to some of the best Universities and apprenticeships in the country. What makes these levels of achievement so impressive is that they were combined with an outstanding commitment to a huge range of leadership opportunities and extra-curricular activities.

Knights Templar continues to develop well rounded young people, prepared for the world beyond school. Congratulations to all our students and we wish them every success for the future.”

Gill Hopkins, Head of Sixth Form, added: "With so many fantastic grades achieved by all our students it is too hard to pick out any one success. Many of our students are now going on to study at the highest level on a diverse and extremely interesting variety of courses, whilst others are being given the benefit of discovering more through the hands on experience of apprenticeships programmes. We wish all of our students every success in the future”
