“The Year 13’s, the group of young men that I’m proud to call my mates, we’ve had it all thrown at us and yet here we are standing tall with our heads held high as we prepare to move on to bigger things. It’s amazing to see even with everything that has gotten in the way how close we’ve become as a group.

 I’m proud of the men each of every one of you has become and getting to hand out the Leaver’s Certificates yesterday really hit that home for me. To all of you who have helped in some way to give this year some familiarity, your work did not go unnoticed and I can’t thank you enough for your support this year.”
