‘In an academic backdrop of increasing challenge, I am yet again delighted that our students have developed the determination, resilience and skills necessary to achieve these results. They are now in an excellent position to embark on the next stage of their careers. It should be noted that behind these excellent figures are true stories of endeavour on the part of the students.
