“I would like to congratulate our students who have worked hard to achieve their well-deserved success and appreciate the support we have had from parents.

“I would particularly like to thank the academy staff who have worked relentlessly to ensure our students received the best grades they could in their exams, allowing them to follow their chosen pathway with the next chapter in their lives.”
