I also acknowledge the hard work and personal support that teachers and staff at the School have provided for our students, particularly during the “Lockdown” Summer Term. They have helped instil students with a sense of self-belief and confidence that has inspired many to exceed their expectations. I extend my very best wishes to all our new alumni as they commence the next phase of their studies.”
