The fantastic achievements of each of our Year Eight leavers.

Posted: 30th June 2017 | Category: Headmaster's Blog

It has been a fantastic year and as I sit down to draft the final blog of 2016/17, my thoughts turn in one direction: the fantastic achievements of each of our Year Eight leavers.

It has been a select crew this year and the girls have had to overcome a fair few changes and challenges throughout the course of the year. I am sure they will readily admit that mock exam results have, at times, been a little wobbly and they have had to dig deep, work hard and show great resilience.

As a result they have each ended the year on a real high, learning some important life lessons along the way which will stand them in good stead for their future studies. I am delighted that they have all passed successfully to their first choice of senior school with some excellent grades and the whole community should be proud of them.
As always, Skippers is committed to understanding and developing the individual within the wider school setting and this is embodied once again in our Year Eight leavers, each of whom are heading off to different schools on separate journeys but on the correct pathway for their future success. They are well-prepared and ready to take that next step with a good academic grounding, self-confidence and an understanding of who they are as people. Well done indeed.
I am very much looking forward to seeing you all at Prizegiving and celebrating the achievements of all our pupils over the course of this past year.
