Dear Parents and CarersGovernors, staff and I wish you, our learners and your families a very happy Christmas and New Year.I commend all our learners for their work this term. It has been a long and busy term and much very good learning has taken place. I visit lessons as often as possible and have been pleased to see the quality of learning in lessons every day.I am delighted that all Year 13 have completed their UCAS application forms where they indicate their choice of University. Many have already been offered places for September 2017. I thank Mrs. Breen for her leadership of this process for Year 13, as well as to all staff who have supported Year 13 in preparing their University applications. Years 11 and 13 have also both successfully completed mock examinations in the past two weeks and we look forward to positive results next half term.
