Our intake is not highly selective but pupils are encouraged to aim high in all that they do, both within the classroom and beyond. Apart from academic successes, many of this year group have also achieved silver and bronze awards in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, outstanding grades and levels of performance in music and drama, as well as success in sport and with their leadership skills too. We say goodbye to a fantastic group of young people and as well as missing them we expect to see them continue to be successful with their future studies and many other talents”.
