This is a tremendous validation of our schools’ aim and ethos.
The unerring dedication of our teachers, be it planning, mentoring, intervention and support, enables our pupils to reach their potential, while growing into well rounded individuals, fully prepared for the next stage of their academic career.
As our pioneering year group, it has been an honour to be part of these pupils’ journeys. They have shown great resilience and determination, that has not only allowed them to achieve academically but to grow as individuals, gain in confidence, realise the importance of a positive attitude and work ethic, while raising the bar for each other as they faced their challenges. I’m incredibly excited for them and their future successes.”
