“Let us not forget this year group had such a disrupted school life, taking the full brunt of Covid-19 and the school closures. However, despite this, they have shown resilience and determination to overcome those difficult times and achieve a great set of results.
“They have also grown into a wonderful group of young people ready to take the next steps in their lives with confidence and, importantly, the grades they need to follow their ambitions.
“We will miss the class of 2023 greatly; they have been a huge part of the school, but we wish them all the best in the future and are proud to call them Burnt Millers.”
Head of school Laura McGlashan said: “We are extremely proud of the achievements of our students who have worked incredibly hard and coped admirably with the challenges of preparing for examinations post-pandemic.
“Our 2023 cohort have achieved some excellent individual results, and their successes are a real testament to their attitude to learning, their resilience and their commitment to achieving their aspirations.
“We would like to thank the teachers and support staff for preparing the students so well for their examinations, and for the continued support of the parents and carers and we wish the students the best of luck for the future.”
