"Congratulations to Year 11 on their results.  The unique awarding process this year should take nothing away from the hard work and commitment our students have shown towards their studies over recent years.  We are deeply proud of their achievements and grateful for the unwavering support from families and our committed St Katherine’s staff. 

The changing circumstances surrounding the results this year have made it challenging for everyone concerned with the results.  We continue to focus our efforts on ensuring all students have clarity and understanding alongside their results and to secure their chosen future pathway.   

There are many great success stories again this year allowing students to progress onto their next pathway.  The achievements of individuals reflect tremendous resilience and determination along their journey.  We wish all our students every success as they take their next steps."
