“I am so pleased that our students have once again performed extremely well and achieved sets of qualifications which will open doors to the next stage in their education and careers. I am proud that their efforts and commitment have paid off. Furthermore, this wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and commitment of the staff at Queen’s Park, alongside the incredible support we receive from our parents. Thank you!
I am overjoyed, so many of our students are continuing their studies within our sixth form, however I would also like to wish those who are moving onto external education and employment the very best of luck and hope they keep us informed of their future endeavours. Take care!”
Mr Kearns, headteacher
“I feel really privileged to have worked with such a motivated and determined year group, many of whom have overcome personal challenges along the way. Their hard work and desire to be successful has allowed them to reap the benefits and we hope they will be celebrating their achievements tonight with their friends and families. Well done to a really lovely bunch of students many of whom we look forward to seeing back with us in September.”
