Headteacher, Mrs Holmes

“As with many schools, the students have missed out on so much in the culmination of their final school year due to Covid-19, including the opportunity to show their abilities in the summer exam process. As a school, we are therefore very pleased that they have been awarded the grades that they so richly deserve after much dedication, hard work and commitment throughout their time at the school.”
