This impressive suite of results reflects the hard work and commitment of this great cohort of students. I would like to pay tribute to our dedicated staff, who, alongside our parent body have supported our students on this very successful journey.

“As an all-ability school we pride ourselves in catering for the full range of abilities and our outstanding results across vocational subjects have ensured that all pupils have achieved at the highest level.”

She added, “The ethos of Lismore nurtures each and every child and so working and learning in our school is really being part of a caring family with Lismore becoming an extension of the home and I would like to thank all of our parents who work in partnership with us to draw out the best in their child and thank them for their continued support.

“It is particularly pleasing to see such positive outcomes which will enable our students to continue to post-16 courses in September. I look forward to welcoming them back to Sixth Form.
