To all of our students at Dyson Perrins who are taking exams at the moment. I have been so impressed by their approach to the GCSE and A Level exams this year; in particular their willingness and desire to go over and above what is possible in a normal school day. Many of our Year 11 students have regularly attended our Period 6 'after school' sessions which were designed to provide additional exam support and revision techniques; on some occasions we have had over half of the year group in attendance, which is great!
More importantly though, I emphasised in a recent letter to the parents of Year 11 how proud I am of them as a group – their impeccable behaviour and attitude coupled with a desire to do their best has made them an absolute joy to work with. Irrespective of their results and grades, I know that they will do well and succeed. Exams are such a pressurised time and I would like to thank you for your support in helping to prepare them for, and nurture them through this process.
These young people are a credit to you and our school and I sincerely wish them every success in the weeks to come. I must also thank their teachers who have worked tirelessly before, during and after the school day to give them the best possible preparation.
