Headteacher, Mrs Holmes

I am immensely proud of our wonderful Year 11 students, who have been outstanding ambassadors in such a challenging time for all. As a generation who have only known GCSE through Covid, they have engaged fully, both in the classroom and with 1-2-1 online learning, working with our dedicated staff to ensure their continuous academic journey. There is no doubt that this is due to the connection between students, parents and teachers, which was so carefully maintained. We are, therefore, very pleased they have achieved the grades they so richly deserve after much dedication, hard work and commitment.
