Head of Sixth Form, Edward Hawkins said “The class of 2018 have performed admirably across all subjects. We are pleased with the grades that they have achieved and the success they have had in securing places at prestigious institutions for next year. Our pupils manage to achieve highly even with the demands of a dual curriculum and deserve credit for their hard work and perseverance. A special mention needs to be made to the teachers involved with teaching the A Level and BTEC subjects, as without their passion, dedication and commitment, these grades would not be possible.”

Tring Park currently offers a wide range of A Level courses; significantly more than any other performing arts school.  It prides itself on producing trained performers who have also achieved a high standard academically, so that they have the highest possible chance of success in the future, and are not restricted in their career choices.
