“Congratulations to all our departing Year 13 students on their achievements this year. It has been a pleasure to work with all of the wonderful young people who will now go on and be the future scientists, entrepreneurs, artists and engineers of the future. It is with great pride that we have again supported so many students through successful university applications, with half of those taking up places being of the first generation in their family to do so. I look forward to continuing to work with the remarkable young people studying with us.”
Justin Humphreys, Headteacher, added:
“I’d like to congratulate our Year 13 students on these well deserved results, which reflect the hard work and determination by them and the dedication of their teachers. There are many examples of personal success stories where students have shown great resilience and determination, resulting in students being rewarded across both academic and vocational subjects. As Year 13 leave our school community, we wish them all the very best for successful futures in their chosen pathway.”
