Principal Gerald O’Connor said: “We are immensely proud of our students, not just of the extremely high standard of results obtained, but the life skills that they have learnt throughout the process – aspiration, teamwork and resilience.
“They are now in an excellent position to look forward and focus upon the next stage of their future within further education or employment.
” An enormous thank you must go out to our whole school community, to the specialist teaching staff who inspired them, the pastoral team who skilfully guided them at times of need and to parents and carers for their unrelenting support.
” The ethos of Saint Augustine’s ensures that all of our students leave school having reached their full academic and personal potential.”
From August 22, Saint Augustine’s will be recruiting students into its Sixth Form for September 2019.
