It has been such a pleasure to welcome our Year 11 pupils back today to award their GCSE grades.

After a messy and stressful few months for all concerned, it has been delightful to see such joy on their faces. Some will of course feel the injustice that they did not have the chance to sit an exam, but their grades were evidenced by the strong work and outcomes they achieved when in school and are much deserved.

We look forward to welcoming them back into school as sixth formers in September.
