Many learners received impressive grades in their GCSEs and vocational courses despite the challenges they faced completing their studies during these unprecedented times.

Asfa Sohail, Principal at Lewisham College, said: “I would like to congratulate our learners on their incredible results. We are extremely proud of them for all they have achieved and the hard work they have put in throughout the year.
