I am delighted for all the girls who have demonstrated that through hard work and commitment it is possible to achieve the highest grades. At Pipers we are proud of the fact that the academic education we provide in our Sixth Form, supported by a challenging programme of enrichment activities, enables our students to go on to study a huge variety of courses at a range of top universities and colleges all over the country.
