We were delighted to be able to celebrate the wide range of achievements of so many of our pupils at our end of term assemblies. Subject teachers nominated pupils for excellent effort and progress in their area this term and form tutors had the very difficult task of selecting their form tutor winner. It is wonderful to see our pupils applauding and encouraging their classmates in such a positive way.

A list of all our fantastic winners will be available shortly.
