“I am absolutely delighted for our 6th Form students today. These results are a superb achievement and I could not be more proud of both our students and 6th Form teaching team. From these fantastic results HCH students will go on to study at some of the UK’s most prestigious universities and I am confident they will take with them the love of learning they have so admirably demonstrated through these results.” Katherine Vintiner, Principal

“We’re so proud and delighted for all our students in achieving this outstanding set of A Level results. These superb grades are a testament to our young people’s determination, hard work and intellectual curiosity – all the more impressive given the challenges of COVID. Our students represent the very best of HCH’s unique ethos, and we wish our Year 13 leavers all the very best as they move on to a fantastic future at university and beyond.” Rob Armiger, Head of Sixth Form

Congratulations to our Y13 students for achieving such impressive results in their A levels. They demonstrated tremendous individual and collective maturity when dealing with the challenges posed by COVID-19 and we are all so proud of them for what they have accomplished. For me personally, it has been a joy and privilege to have been their form tutor and I wish them all the best in the next chapter of their lives. I look forward to hearing how they are getting on and very much hope to see them visiting us at HCH in the future. Thomas Roberts, Year 13 form tutor

Remote teaching, Zoom calls, covid, lockdown, CAG’s… all part of the vocabulary from the last few years of their educational journey that didn’t exist when they started their secondary education seven years ago. They should be so proud of all they have achieved. They have shown determination and resilience in the challenges they faced; I wish them the very best as they embark on the next part of their learning journey and look forward to hearing about their exploits. Paul Pearce, Deputy Head Academic
