Celebrating Academic Excellence

I would like to take this opportunity to celebrate our top academic achievers (Grade 8 -10) for 2021. I wish to congratulate these students for managing to produce these excellent results in what was, again, an unusual year. We are very proud of them. They exemplify our Culture Principles of High Expectations, Always Growing and being Solutions First. Well done!

While recognising these examples of excellence, I also wish to congratulate all the students who made the best of this year. Overall, our data show an ongoing improvement in the academic performance of almost all of our students. I must commend our teachers on also pulling out all the stops and not allowing the complexities of the past two years to get in the way of delivering excellent teaching. I salute you.

Lastly, to our parents. You have been incredibly supportive of both us as a school and your children. In a true spirit of being Greater Together, you have rolled with the punches while trusting us to get on with the job. It is such a privilege to help lead a school when you feel that you have the implicit trust and support of parents. We thank you.

We look forward to hosting a formal awards assembly in the new year to recognise these students as well as the IGCSE, AS and A-level students.
