It is evident that students have grasped every opportunity our school has offered them and this has enabled them to achieve at the highest levels. We are immensely proud of Year 12, especially when the extraordinary breadth of their extra curricular achievements is also taken into consideration. Undoubtedly, students will be feeling inspired to continue to pursue their future aspirations following their wonderful individual performances at GCSE as the vast majority return to study A Levels at St Louis Grammar.”
