The first students at Twickenham Academy picked up their AS level results today. 

Principal, Nick Jones, said: “I am delighted with the recent AS level results as they mark the culmination of incredible hard work by students and staff in the first year of our sixth form.

"This not only provides a post-16 choice that was not previously available in the borough but has enabled other students lower down the school, to reach their potential."
