Dr Jane Overbury OBE, Collegiate Principal of Christ the King College, said:

“With each year that passes I continue to be overwhelmed by the enthusiasm, the dedication and the high level of student achievement at Christ the King Sixth Form College. This year’s results are a testament to the diligence and commitment of our capable and ambitious students, and I am incredibly proud of their A Level and BTEC outcomes. Over the past sixteen years the College has made consistent, impressive progress and in 2014 we have once again surpassed national pass rate A Level and BTEC benchmarks. This is a tremendous achievement, and is also due to the unwavering dedication of teaching and support staff, who commit themselves fully to the success and well-being of the students. Staff at Christ the King believe in each and every student, and it is wonderful to see these young people grow and develop throughout their time at the College. It is incredible that over a thousand Christ the King students will progress on to higher education this September and I am confident that the skills and experience they have gained at the College have prepared them well for future work and study. 

Our college motto, ‘Ut Vitam Habeant’, means ‘that they may have life’. I bid farewell to the students of 2014 with pride and admiration, safe in the knowledge that they will enter the world as well-rounded, confident and capable individuals.  I know that Christ the King leavers will go on to achieve great things, and I wish them the very best of luck in their future endeavors.”
