Year 9 Students of the Week

This week’s students of the week are my entire year group.

Thank you year 9 for being amazing students and allowing me to support you throughout the last year and a half. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all and it has been a joy to come into work every morning to see you all. I will truly miss each and every one of you.

I wish you all the success and know you will all go on to do amazing things.

From Miss Herrington.
