Dr Lynda Mitchell, Director of Quality and Compliance at Kedleston Group, said: "COVID-19 undoubtedly presented huge challenges for the young people at Arc School Old Arley. They have therefore done an amazing job and we’re thrilled to say that 100% of our leavers are moving on to further education in mainstream colleges or into training in an apprenticeship. We simply couldn’t be prouder of them.
“They have worked so hard for these qualifications. On their journey they’ve shown great resilience and determination to succeed. Our role here is to nurture their individual interests and talents and give the young people the skills, confidence and experiences they need to give them a foundation to build on for further success.”
