“Amy is an outstanding student; she is exceptionally conscientious and very well-organised. Amy acts on advice and pushes herself to strive for her very best. Amy has attended a lot of additional revision sessions in Religious Studies and shown a genuine determination to get to grips with challenging vocabulary and quotations. She is a delightful young lady who is respected by everybody. Amy is an absolute pleasure to teach; she deserves every success in her examinations.”

“Amy is an exemplary student.  She is always focused and produces high quality art work in lessons and for homework.  She already has outstanding artistic skills, but constantly challenges herself to progress and learn more sophisticated professional art techniques and processes.”

“Amy is making excellent progress in French. She has an outstanding work ethic and I have been really impressed but the amount of independent revision she has been doing outside of her lessons to prepare for the final exams. She is developing a very good understanding of the grammar and vocabulary requirements for the higher French GCSE papers and, in particular, has worked hard to improve the quality of her writing. Amy always participates well in lessons and is a pleasure to teach. Well done Amy!”
