Congratulations to all our students for their achievements today.
This year group have worked really hard with the challenges of the new GCSEs and have demonstrated that, regardless of their starting points, they have all made excellent progress during their time here.
We are exceptionally proud of our students who leave Millthorpe School well prepared for their future education post-16.
I am also grateful for the dedication of our staff who have guided the students through this challenging time and worked relentlessly to support all of our students.
