I am very proud of all students for achieving such clear goals to the next steps in their lives and in securing their university places, apprenticeships and employment. I very much look forward to hearing from all our students about their achievements in the future.” Mrs Weir Assistant Head teacher Sixth Form was also very pleased for the students. “It is lovely to see year 13 achieve such success having made great progress over the last two years.
