Congratulations to Year 11.  The boys prepared well and have been well rewarded for their efforts.   They were exemplary throughout the exam period, encouraging and supporting each other.  We are especially pleased to see the marked improvement in English.  Thank you to the parents, staff, trustees and governors who have given such great support to help secure this success for our students.
