"Over the past two years our A level students have grown in confidence as they have progressed academically, socially and as leaders within the school.

"They can now look forward to a bright future at university and beyond.

"Their excellent results confirm that the class of 2020 have worked incredibly hard over the last two years and deserve considerable praise for their efforts.

"The outstanding commitment of the Crompton House students, staff and parents has been reflected in the overall improvement in results compared to the previous year.”
