The successful performances
reflect the work ethic and
determination of our students.
Much credit must also go to the
teachers across LaSWAP, who
worked together across the schools
to meet the challenges of these
more difficult A Levels. Our teachers
collaborated and planned many
assessments so the students were
not disadvantaged by the lack of
practice papers available from
the exam boards. They were well
prepared for the final exams.
We wish all our students every
success in the future, and look
forward to welcoming many back to
inspire future generations of aspiring
LaSWAP Sixth Formers.
