It is really pleasing to see that all of their hard work over the last two years has paid off and has been recognised by exam boards.

They have embodied the school’s values throughout their time with us and have been excellent role models. We wish all of our students the very best of luck in the future and look forward to hearing about all of their successes to come.”
