Head of Sixth Form Caroline McClean said ‘We are so proud of the way in which our amazing students have shown incredible resilience in very unusual circumstances this year. Our strong results and the excellent destinations students have secured are the reflection of not only the hard work of students but the support of their teachers and families.’
Principal Kerry McCullagh added “V6 is a close community, the students have come together with the support of their teachers to navigate this uniquely challenging end to their school years. It is wonderful to see students achieving the qualifications they need to progress onto their dream destinations. In a time of uncertainty, one thing that is for certain is that these compelling individuals will continue to contribute to their communities making a positive difference.’
Chair of Trustees Gail Bragg said: “This academic year has presented steep challenges to staff and students, and V6 has met each one head-on with resilience and a determination to succeed. Staff quickly adapted to provide academic and pastoral support to students working at home, ensuring that all students, including the most vulnerable, felt connected and supported throughout the long period of school closure. We have a moral responsibility to provide every student with the confidence, ambition and skills to achieve their goals and across Venturers Trust we are working hard to improve the life chances of all children from all backgrounds.”
