Headmaster Andrew Russell commented: “Extraordinary people are born of extraordinary times and having experienced the toughest of circumstances, these students have the strength of character and determination to succeed in whatever the next challenge holds for them. I am extremely proud of all of their individual journeys and these results are testament to a bespoke, tailored programme that St David’s offers each of its 6th form students.”
