Thanks to everyone who made this morning’s GCSE Prize-Giving event such a joyful, fulfilling and rewarding occasion for one and all. Achievement at this level does not come easy and we thank everyone who encouraged, mentored and motivated our students along the way. It has been quite a journey for all in the Academy since the spring of 2018 and we commend all our students for the manner in which they stuck to the task and delivered such an excellent outcome. We thank especially all the Year 13 parents who have been so supportive of all our teaching and learning initiatives over the past year and we look forward to once again raising the bar as our new sixth formers head for the next level. A big thank you to Mrs McIlroy, Mrs Cullen and Mr Fahy for guiding us effortlessly through this morning’s unending catalogue of success and to our Governors, Chaplain and Principal for their leadership, guidance and support. Achieving excellence together.
