The headmaster, Mr Marc Morris, said, "This year 11 had been regarded as fairly typical but with a higher number of pupils with long-term illness and other problems. However, the teamwork which is formed by pupils, teachers and parents working together has once again shown its worth. In all respects this was a record year. Readers of newspapers see lists of results; I hope they realise the tremendous amount of work which goes into them. I have been at BRGS for 18 months now and I can honestly say it is the best job I have ever had. I want to thank my staff for their unstinting dedication to provide the best start in life that our pupils could wish for. Results like this are a “thankyou” for staff and parents as well as a reward for pupils. I wish all pupils well as they progress on to sixth form study, employment or training."
