We are thrilled with Year 11s efforts this year. They have shown enormous resilience over the past years of highly-interrupted schooling, and been rewarded by a fantastic set of GCSE results. They worked incredibly hard throughout the year, and should be proud of these grades. A big thank you to the wonderful staff at WLFS for the support they have shown these pupils.

Ben McLaughlin and Robert Peal, Joint Headteachers

I am delighted by the achievements of our pupils with support from our experienced teaching staff. It’s very pleasing that so many of our pupils will be going on to both our Sixth Form to begin the next stage of their education. Our A level and GCSE results this year have both been significantly above national and London averages – congratulations to all.
