“The pathway to their success has not always been a smooth one, and there have been many twists, turns, and mistakes made along the way. But that is where success can be found. Mistakes are fundamental to achieving success; it is about learning from the mistakes, driving forward and having the courage to continue. Developing the character to succeed is the key, and often this is formed within the fires of trial, error and difficulty.

“This Form 6 has demonstrated that they have the determination, resilience, character, ambition and talent to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.

“Congratulations once again. I am so very proud of you all.”

Parents, teachers, and the entire school community are beaming with pride at the remarkable achievements of these Year 6 pupils, who have set a shining example for fellow pupils and future generations.

Congratulations to our Form 6 for their incredible success in the 11+ exams – a true reflection of their hard work and potential! May their achievements inspire and motivate others to reach for the stars.
