Barnaby Ash, Headteacher at St Mark’s School, Bath congratulated the students on their achievements adding, “We are delighted for our students and all that they have achieved in their sixth form studies at The New Sixth. They have all attained the results that they needed to secure their university or education setting of choice. The New Sixth provides a high quality sixth form education for all and we look forward to building on these successes to continue to raise the bar for sixth form students in the local area.”

Ann Cusack, Headmistress of Saint Gregory’s said, “It is wonderful to see our sixth form students do so well in their exams. The students have worked extremely hard and really deserve their excellent results. Our sixth form team have worked tirelessly with our students throughout their A Levels and helped them every step of the way to ensure they achieved success. The results are testimony to everyone’s efforts and firmly establishes our sixth form as an outstanding post-16 provider in Bath.”

“For many of our students it’s been a seven-year journey and, throughout their time at St Gregory’s and The New Sixth, we have watched them grow and develop into fantastic young adults who are now ready to take their place in the world and begin the next stage in their journey. Every student at The New Sixth is unique, with their own ambitions and aspirations, and our aim is to nurture this individuality and encourage our students to follow their own learning pathway with bespoke guidance and support from our dedicated sixth form team.”

“Our students have, once again, successfully secured places in top universities, including Oxbridge and the Russell Group, equipped with a portfolio of qualifications, skills and experiences that will enable them to embrace the challenges of undergraduate life with confidence and enthusiasm.”
