Luke Baker, Assistant Headteacher, said: “There are so many names on this list who have their own success stories, despite their own challenges and barriers. The example set here is that anyone can achieve success if they throw their all at it. I am very proud of the Year 11s heading into their last full term with us, and the Year 7s ending their first, as well as all of those in between.”
