Changes in specifications meant it was a more challenging year for staff but the students came up trumps.

Headteacher Angie Francis said: “It has been a pleasure to work with these students.

“I thank them for their many contributions to the wider life of the school and I wish them success and happiness in their future endeavours.

“Students continue to make exceptional progress, due in no small part to the high level of support given and the aspirational ethos of the school.”
