We look forward to welcoming many of these students back into our school community to continue their studies in our Sixth Form. They have been a delight to teach and our staff have been simply great at supporting them in their time here at Cheney School. I wish them all the very best in their future studies.”
Ms Kirby, CEO Community Schools Alliance Trust, said “Today has been a fantastic day for Cheney School, and it has been a real privilege seeing the year group thrive and secure such impressive results. The student body rose to the challenges of the exams with a positive ‘can do’ attitude. They are also a year group who contributed significantly to the life and success of the school. I would like to particularly acknowledge the important role staff have played in helping them achieve, it has been a really enjoyable experience seeing the students work with staff in such a mature and responsible manner”.
