The achievements of the pupils are the result of sustained effort invested over the course of their studies and this is a time for them to celebrate the fruits of their hard work. On behalf of the staff and Governing Body I congratulate them and their families.
We are also very proud that so many pupils have chosen to continue their studies at our successful sixth form. Many people have congratulated us recently on the excellent outcomes secured by our sixth form students. Our sixth form is an inclusive and close community with a clear focus on everyone making the most of their God-given talents in order to achieve to the very best of their ability. We take pride in both the academic and vocational courses we offer and also that pupils can combine these study routes if they wish.
We welcome warmly pupils from not just our own school, but also from other schools in the city which contributes to the distinctive vibrant and productive atmosphere that characterises our sixth form. Our students grow to be learned and wise citizens with a strong sense of belonging. For anyone interested in joining our sixth form, please contact the school at any time. ‘
