“Jack is becoming a well-known figure in our region and I predict that he has the potential and talent to make a mark at national level. 

“We will miss him in the sixth form but he promised to return to inspire our younger students as we continue our TKASA tradition of aiming for the very top.”

The high-achieving sixth form is part of The Priory Learning Trust and takes students from Highbridge, Burnham, and Weston-super-Mare and even Italy, Belgium and Germany.

It has record numbers of 30 students starting in September and some of the south west‘s best performance statistics.
