The headmaster, Mr Marc Morris, said, "Once again we have maintained the high standards we have worked so hard to achieve over the last few years and I want to thank parents as well as teachers for their unstinting efforts. Education is a partnership between the students, parents and school to encourage and guide the young people to achieve the best results they can. And let's not forget the excellent foundations to learning which are laid by the primary schools in the valley. We can together celebrate the successes of year 11 and feel proud that we have helped them along the way."
