Post 16 Success at Hanson
Congratulations to all our students
Hanson School has taken massive strides forward over the last two years and the Sixth Form is a major part of the progress that has been achieved.
We would like to congratulate every student that successfully completed their post-16 studies. We recognise the sheer dedication and hard-work that has gone into achieving each and every grade, especially in view of the changes that have taken place in how some of the courses are delivered and assessed.
We hope all our students will go on to be a success in the future, in whatever fields they choose, and add to the exceptional legacy of our previous alumni.
