St Thomas More’s Year 11 students have been remarkable throughout the last two years! They have risen to the challenges that the pandemic has thrown at them; school closures, isolation, home learning and the cancellation of public examinations have all tested their resilience and placed them under even more pressure than the GCSEs would in themselves already pose. Throughout, our students have remained motivated and determined to succeed. Today we have celebrated their well-deserved achievements with them as they received their grades, together with guidance about the next steps in their educational journey, in order that they can successfully begin their sixth form studies or apprenticeships. They really have achieved the results that they truly deserve and we are excited to hear about their successes in the future.
