Hannah and Jane Conley are both top performers and excelled in all subjects, achieving the prestigious 9 grade in English, Geography and PE.

 

Headteacher, Miss Whelan commented:

“I am delighted with the exceptional performance of students who have coped remarkably well with these new examinations and have worked so hard to achieve these results. The results are a reflection of the culture of high aspirations for all at Weatherhead, and the tremendous hard work and commitment of both the students and our dedicated and highly professional staff.”

Chair of Governors, Mrs Owens MBE congratulated students on their success and thanked staff for all of their hard work.
