Purbrook Park Pupils Celebrate Exam Success!

We are delighted with the efforts of both pupils and staff at Purbrook Park.  This is a new examination system that has been deliberately designed to be tougher. We have managed its introduction and have successfully implemented the changes that are required.  We are incredibly proud of our staff and pupils; they have shown great resilience and perseverance at a time that has been particularly challenging.
