Headmaster Kevin Fear said “This further accolade for the School is fantastic recognition for the excellent work that goes on in the School day in and day out.  We achieve the highest of standards across the full range of our provision and there is a spirit of aspiration throughout the School.  All of our staff, support and teaching alike, work hard to ensure that the students here not only achieve outstanding examination results but also are happy, well-supported and really enjoy their school experience.  We are proud to once again be named as the top school in the region as well as being recognised on a national level as the co-educational school of the year.”
