Well done to you all."

"After the two disrupted years that these students have had educationally, I am immensely proud of them all for what they have achieved.  Their attitude to learning this year, their determination to succeed and their ability to work through periods of extreme anxiety to demonstrate how very clever they are - all of these should be hugely commended. Our students are genuinely amongst the most capable and resilient learners I have ever worked with. I couldn’t be prouder of what they have achieved."

- Mrs Elkins, Headteacher
