"Like their peers in our sixth form they have achieved well in national exams and are now in the enviable position of having many opportunities available to them for their futures. "These outcomes represent the hard work of the students, all the staff of the college and the support of friends and family. "I am very proud of all the young people of Bideford College who contribute so much to the college and our local community. "Whilst we look forward to welcoming many of them back to study in our sixth form we wish them all lots of luck for the future."
