Principal Richard Found said: “I am delighted all our students have done so well. They have worked tremendously hard, regularly putting in extra hours after school, at weekends and during their holidays. This work ethic will enable them to take their next step, be it University, Apprenticeships or employment. They therefore thoroughly deserve the success that they have achieved.”
