This year, the school have seen a significant increase in pupils that have chosen Sherfield as their first choice for A-level study and the school will be welcoming back more than double the number of Year 11 pupils compared with previous years.

Sherfield school run A Level and BTEC courses, with the opportunity for students to combine pathways and study a mixture of A Levels and BTECs.

Nick Brain, Headteacher at Sherfield School, said: "Once again we are absolutely thrilled with the superb results achieved by our students; the culmination of all the hard work, commitment and dedication to their studies.

"Although education should not always be about results, and we should be mindful of the social and emotional benefits of attending Sherfield, it is naturally very pleasing to share in the fantastic success of our wonderful students.”

One parent of a student who collected their results added: "We are so delighted that our son has been 'raised' in Sherfield School since he was two, what an amazing investment it has been in his development and education."
