The League Tables were published this week, and for the first time in three years our GCSE results have been included. Although it was bizarrely comforting to be right at the bottom of the pile at the time when we studied the (non-league tabled) iGCSE, it is also nice to be nationally recognised for what we are doing here at Pate’s. Please read the BBC News article (here), which looks at the ‘best 8 points scores’ across all schools in the country. We are delighted with our placing, and also that we are the third best state school in the post-16 tables. 

Come to my home if there are other options for me it seems stupid propecia online and it is here that you can hear a lot of nutty facts regarding which you have in no circumstances heard of.

Rehearsals for the Sixth Form Play, ‘Hamlet’ are in full flow. Performances are this Thurs-Sat 5th-7th February @ 7pm. Please do come to watch this exceptional performance - a stirring and thought-provoking spectacle! Tickets cost £6 for adults and £3 for students and are available on line via the website (here), or from the school office.
