Our Year 13 students deserve much praise and recognition for their hard work and industry together with adaptability, understanding and resilience during such unprecedented times. We are incredibly proud of our young people’s fine achievements. Today marks the end of their secondary school education. They leave us as fine young adults, starting their next chapter in higher education, apprenticeships or employment.
The students’ hard work and determination has enabled many of them to progress onto their first choice of universities including, University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Royal Veterinary College, University of Manchester, University of Leeds, Durham University, Loughborough University, Queen Mary University of London, University of Reading, the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, and American universities Princeton University and University of California, Berkeley.
Our creative subjects continue to thrive with students being accepted at distinguished art schools. We are also pleased students have secured places on high-quality apprenticeships.
Headteacher Zehra Jaffer commented “We are absolutely delighted by the fantastic performance of our Year 13 students. Our students have achieved brilliant outcomes in the most challenging of times and most importantly they leave us as an incredible group of young adults who have demonstrated such fortitude, compassion and adaptability at a time of great uncertainty. They are an absolute credit to the School and their families.
"As they join the SNS alumni, we are certain these young people will build on this success and continue to make their mark in the world. Thank you to all the staff, students and their families for their hard work, determination and commitment in making this possible. Well done all!”
Fran Plowright-Nelson, Chair of Governors, said “On behalf of all governors, I would like to thank the staff for their extraordinary dedication and commitment to our students and to all parents/carers for their hard work and support to the school over the years, particularly in recent challenging times. Most of all we would like to celebrate the tremendous work of all the students – who in addition to their achievements, rightly deserve much praise for their tenacity and perseverance at this time. Well done to all. We wish you nothing but the best for your futures."
