On behalf of all of the Whalley Range Sixth Form community, I would like to extend huge congratulations to the class of 2021 for all of their hard work, determination and resilience that has lead to some fantastic achievements for our students. We are all very proud of them and wish them every success in their next steps, whether that be University, an Apprenticeship or Employment.
A big thank you to all the staff as none of this would have been possible without their excellent teaching and the support they have provided students throughout their time in the Sixth Form.
This cohort of Year 13 students will never be forgotten and they have all earned their place as valued members of the Whalley Range Sixth Form alumnae and we hope that they keep in touch with updates on their successes.
