Amongst many areas of success, we are particularly pleased to see the very strong results in Mathematics and English. Students have worked extremely hard and these excellent results are a tribute to their commitment and hard work. I would like to thank their teachers and other staff who have taught and supported students so effectively, and also parents who have nurtured and encouraged students throughout their time at school.” “Although today we are, of course we focusing upon celebrating our students’ GCSE results, it is important to remember that Penair students gain a fully rounded education.
