The school’s strong showing allowed many students to pursue their post-16 pathway of choice, whether that be academic study at a sixth form, a paid apprenticeship or a vocational course at a college.

Mark Anstiss, headteacher at Felpham Community College, said: ‘We are very pleased with all of our students’ achievements today.

“Obtaining these results takes hard work, the current situation has meant that this has been a difficult and stressful time for the students, we are proud of the resistance and determination that they have shown over the last two years.

“It is important to remember that these results reflect two years of hard work, perseverance and commitment of both the students and the teachers.

These great results provide our students with an opportunity to access our academic 6th form and provide a firm foundation for university or work in the future. Staff and students have worked unbelievably hard.

“I would also like to thank our parents and the school governors for their support and commitment to our school in these unprecedented times.

“In a time of real turbulence in the examination system, with a very wide range of qualifications being taken, it is very pleasing that our students have done so well.”
