All of our students have been a pleasure to work with and have consistently contributed a great deal of their time to the everyday life of the school; today is the real reward for all of their efforts to be the very best they can be.”

Headteacher, Damian Stenhouse, added:
“These results represent two years of hard work, backed up by outstanding teaching and support from parents. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of our students on their considerable achievements. A large number of our students have once again secured places at prestigious universities and with reputable companies and we are obviously very proud of their achievements and wish them happy and successful futures.”
