This evening I attended the Year 11 Achievement Evening at St Mary's Catholic High School...

It was a real honour to be asked by Cath McMahon, headteacher at this highly successful school, to be part of this very special evening and to present the certificates and awards to some fantastic young people. The school achieved some extraordinary GCSE results this year; their best ever GCSE results placing the school amongst the most successful and highest achieving comprehensive schools in the country. The school is a Sports College and the specialism has clearly made a huge impact in terms of coaching and leadership as well as health and well-being. 

Mr Priestley, the students Head of Year, introduced the evening which also included performances by Matthew Roberts, who sang the cafe song from Les Miserables, and Jack Loughlin, who played classical gas. The Class of 2010 were very clearly everything you could want from a group of young people... talented, gorgeous, brilliant and wonderful!

It was great to share this very special evening with the team at St Mary's.
