It reminded me of when I received my GCSE results and the excitement of looking forward to the future. I wish them luck whatever their next steps, particularly those staying on at our excellent post-16 provision in Merton.

“I also enjoyed meeting some of the dedicated teaching staff, whose hard work has helped to ensure that all our secondary schools have been rated as Good or Outstanding by Ofsted.”
