Commenting, Headmaster Mr. Irfan Latif said, “In a climate where financial pressures on education are especially great, I am so proud of our students and teachers for achieving another year of record-breaking results. They are testament to the outstanding teaching that our students receive here at Sexey’s, with staff going above and beyond to help our students achieve their very best. My huge congratulations go to our students, who have demonstrated their ability to prepare themselves so well for their examinations – and by extension, their future lives both at university and in industry. We wish them all the very best for their future.” Proud parent with son collecting A Level result

Mr Dan Bull, Deputy Head, added, “Exam results aren’t the only goal of education, but they are a helpful benchmark. I would particularly like to congratulate those students who achieved two or more grades higher than originally predicted at the start of their A Level course. At Sexey’s, we seek to provide a supportive and caring environment for students to achieve their maximum potential and we are so pleased that this year’s results attest to this. I wish them all the best as they continue their studies at some of the most selective and prestigious universities or enter a competitive employment market with a strong academic foundation. In this vein, congratulations also goes to our Head Boy Maximillian Kaberry as he goes to Sandhurst to pursue his career.”
