The hard work of the students themselves, together with the excellent teaching of my colleagues and the support of the students’ families has led to these outstanding results. Our Director of Learning/Sixth Form, Mr Woodward, is looking forward to welcoming most of our Year 11 back to our Sixth Form to continue their education at Heber.
