“Tom is an exceptional student; he works incredibly hard and spends a lot of his own time rehearsing and helping out with clubs.  He works very hard in lessons and helps out others if they are unsure.  Tom is extremely committed to College life and participates in many Creative Arts activities as well as sporting fixtures.  Above all, he is a genuinely nice young man who is able to communicate well and shows great respect for his peers and teachers.”

R Wilkinson, Team Leader of Music and Performing Arts

“Tom’s perseverance in Maths is great. He works hard to understand everything and isn’t deterred if he doesn’t get it right first time; he’ll happily listen to feedback and give it another go. He has good questions and tries to help those around him if they’re not finding it as easy as he does. Tom knows that his homework is really important and his effort with this is exceptional; it’s often the most well-presented, with workings clearly shown and it stands out from the rest of the class.”

C Dorme, Teacher of Mathematics

“Tom is a polite, friendly and considerate student. He is well liked in the tutor group and mixes well with students of other year groups. I have been particularly impressed with his "big brother" mentoring approach to some of our Year 7 students. He is an excellent role model to them and I am delighted to see he has achieved the role of prefect and Vice House Captain.”

S Faro, Tutor

“Tom’s a brilliant student who works hard and always pushes himself to do his best. He is incredibly friendly and polite – an excellent role model.”

L Clarke, Teacher of English

“In Design & Technology, Tom is creative, imaginative and presents his work neatly and with detail. He is always smartly dressed and is a pleasure to teach.”
