Early indications show Sutton’s schools have achieved well above the national average – cementing Sutton’s reputation as one of the top performing boroughs in the country.

These results are the culmination of years of hard work by students, teachers and parents, whose guidance and support is vital for success.
“I wish everyone who has received results today continued success in their future education and careers.”
The students from the 14 secondary schools in Sutton were among more a quarter of a million teenagers picking up their A-level results today.
Staff and pupils at Nonsuch High School for Girls [pictured] were among those celebrating. The school achieved its best ever results - 88% of entries were awarded A*-B grades, with 62% earning A*-A grades. Seven students will be taking up Oxbridge places.
Kathryn Bloxham gained 3A* and 2A's and is off to study Biology at Sheffield.
