It was a big well done today to Marches School Sixth Form students and staff who have ridden the last two incredibly tough years together.

Hayley Alldridge from the school said, “It is joyous today celebrating the realisation of the talent we always knew they had, seeing the students able to move onto the exciting and varied courses they have chosen and the smiles on faces today. We have watched this year group grow in confidence and resilience, through their programme of study and careful support. The journey for them has not been the usual one, but together through nurture and our strong family links we can now celebrate the student’s successes together.”

Sarah Peacock, Key Stage 5 Raising Standards Leader commented, “Congratulations and well done to every student. Today the hard work and determination is rewarded and I am excited for their futures. They are great role models for the excellent young people of Oswestry. We look forward to seeing many of them back to share their experiences in the future to illustrate just what is possible.“

Headteacher of The Marches School and Sixth Form, Alison Pearson added, “Congratulations to everyone we could not be more pleased with the outcomes of this year’s results and what it means to the student’s futures. They are now on the way as we stand proudly on. Once again, our tailored approach from staff and the support from parents has benefitted the success of the students immensely.”
