They have been exceptionally committed and hardworking throughout the year and have now achieved the success they deserve. A number of them are now going on to pursue their studies at some of the finest universities in the country, whilst others will be starting apprenticeships or entering full employment. They have very exciting futures ahead of them and we wish them every success and happiness.”
