We celebrated another outstanding set of written reports today. This time our 6th formers (Year 12 & Year 13) met and received their reports in person from Dr Steffen Sommer our Principal.
These students all achieved 3 or more A and A*s in their recent reports as well as excellent effort grades. This explained Mrs Gammon Head of Year 13, "is an incredible achievement and a reflection of our students' continued hard work."
