Mr Baxter, Headteacher at The Cooper School, stated, ‘The students and staff have put in a huge amount of effort in to getting these results which they should be very proud of. Yet again, in a time of educational change, we have worked together to provide good teaching and feedback, revision classes over and above lesson time and intervention groups in order to ensure that students are supported to achieve the best that they can. It was an exhausting year for all but I am very pleased and proud of the results that have been achieved.’
Michael Waine, Chair of Governors, said, ‘The Cooper School continues to provide an excellent learning environment for students and I am so pleased that all the efforts of the students and staff in working so hard towards this day has paid off. I wish the students the best of luck for their future courses at The Cooper School or elsewhere’
