“Katherine is an outstanding student in English and Drama. Her perception, insight and understanding are always brilliant, with a mature attitude to her learning and what she is learning about. She is also always a friendly student who gets on well with other students and staff alike. Of particular note, a homework about ‘Macbeth’ was superb – I used it as an example of excellent work with many other students of all ages. Well done Katherine!”
