“All the hard work in class and revision at home has paid off and we have a lot to celebrate, there are so many joyous individual success stories and as a school we are seeing significant indicators of improvement.

“This is a great opportunity to thank all the parents, carers and supporters of the school but it is also a good time to acknowledge the staff and governors too, we are all in this together to make sure the young people of Weston get the best.
