This sustained improvement has been achieved by a dedicated teaching staff committed to getting the best from their students, who on their part have been working harder than ever to achieve their full potential .
In the letter, David Laws, Minister of State for Schools and the Cabinet Office, states, “The results are a shining testament to the hard work and success of your staff, governors and pupils. I would like to offer my thanks to you and all at your school for your pursuit of the highest standards of educational achievement.”
Ms Marais Leenders, Headteacher, says, “I am delighted that the school has been commended. Students, staff and parents have all worked exceptionally hard over the last few years and this has really paid off. The school is now in an incredibly strong position both locally and nationally. We are very much looking forward to another set of splendid results this summer.”
