“It requires a great team effort, from students, home and school, for a sixth form of our size to perform with consistent excellence like this, and I am grateful to all for meeting our high expectations.

“As ever, it is the way our students achieve as well as what they achieve that impresses me – and I thank them all for the zest and curiosity they have put into being such fantastic Steyning Grammar role models.”
