“The resilience, friendship, and hard work they have shown in the face of another disrupted year has been inspiring to see and represents the very best of our community.

“Everyone at the college would like to thank all our Year 13 students for their incredible efforts and contribution to the college over the past two years.

“They really are a amazing group of young people, who have lived and breathed changes at the college forced upon us by Covid-19, but responded with imagination, dedication, and a commitment to self-development.

“They will inspire students for years to come and always find a welcome at Hailsham Sixth Form.”

A spokesperson from the college said, “Hailsham Sixth Form students take a range of pathways to achieve their next steps for the future and Katie Saxby, A A distinction* in history, law and sport, Lottie Ames, A A distinction in law, psychology and performing arts and Freya Holman A distinction* distinction in photography, performing arts and travel and tourism combined excellent A-Level results with impressive vocational performance.

“As well as the 50 students progressing to the university courses of their choice, others secured roles in employment or further training include prestigious degree apprenticeships for Emily Cole in civil engineering and Annabell Price with L’Oréal.”
