“It is wonderful to see our Year 11 rewarded with such fantastic results and doing so well in subjects across the board. There have been some personal triumphs about which the students will be justly proud. There have been so many very happy faces in school today and we look forward to seeing them all back in September to begin their Sixth Form A Level studies.”
