Anna Stanley, has been accepted into the Army. Gareth Jones, has secured a place with the RAF. Ross Hamilton, an apprenticeship with MoD.
These are superb results for a dedicated, diligent year group. During my first year at the school, I have been proud to witness our students' talents, hard work and tenacity, all of which have clearly paid dividends, shown not only in their excellent academic achievements, but also in the multitude of enrichment activities they have undertaken, ranging from charity events to the Duke of Edinburgh and Young Leaders projects. I have been proud to be their Head of 6th Form and wish them all the very best of luck for the future.
Well done everyone, we are proud of your achievements today, as we have been proud of your achievements over the last 7 years.
Mel Thomas, Head of 6th form
