Our inspirational students should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved today. They have encountered many obstacles along the way but remained positive in their approach to their studies and committed to achieving the highest standards. The Sixth at Gumley House has come a long way in recent years and we pride ourselves on our academic success and commitment to providing a personalised experience through our pathways and Scholars’ Programme.

I am immensely proud of the hard work and talents of each individual student and the commitment of the whole school community which supported them, especially during these unprecedented times. Their aspirational approach to academic study whilst also being role models for the rest of the school and maintaining their interests and passions is commendable. We wish them the very best in the exciting futures which lie ahead.
