“Some changes teachers know about, others they don’t until the results come out.
“So many of our students have worked extremely hard and have met or exceeded their very challenging targets - I congratulate them all, but special mention must go to Chris Ludlow and Jamie Kearse, who both surpassed their targets in every single subject.”
