Executive Headteacher, Emma Yates, said, “All of our students deserve recognition for their achievements and it has been a pleasure to see how our students quickly adapted their working habits to make the most of all the changes that came their way over the last two years. It has been heartening to see how our students worked with their teachers to overcome obstacles to meet the demanding requirements set by the exam boards. My thanks go to our staff for working diligently to ensure a rigorous and fair assessment process that was validated by the Exam Board and to parents for all the support they provided at home. Never has the home-school relationship been so important in education and we are very fortunate to work with a fantastic group of young people and their families.”
