Good News Story:

We have recently received the results for our Functional Skills English learners. They have worked incredibly hard over the year, and the results are a testament to their dedication. Hard work pays off. Well done to all, and we hope to continue supporting them on their learning journey.
In addition to our Functional Skills, our GCSE learners have completed all their exams, and we are eagerly awaiting their results in August. We’d like to congratulate them on their progress, determination, and commitment to their learning journey. Regardless of the results, we wish them a wonderful journey and hope they get to use their transferable skills in life.
