"Most importantly, they have all obtained a place at university on their chosen courses and we would like to wish them all the best for the future.”

All students at Caedmon College Sixth Form are all leaving with suitable progression routes and almost all university applicants have accessed their chosen course.

Caedmon College Sixth Form governor, Jane Kenyon Miller expressed her congratulations to all students who have succeeded so highly.

She added: “It is pleasing to see so many students achieve results that put them on course to pursue their ambitions through higher education or excellent employment opportunities.

"We are proud to be offering high quality Post 16 education in Whitby and would like to thank all families and the local community for the fabulous support we have received this year and very much look forward to working with you next year to achieve great things with our Post 16 students."
