Learner of the Week


Thomas - ICT

Thomas attends every ICT lesson with enthusiasm and a hunger to learn. He is polite and bubbly and I thoroughly enjoy teaching him. He has done particularly well in grasping the concepts surrounding Programming and Digital Logic.
Mrs Smolenski

Tom is one of those students that makes the job of teacher a worthwhile one. His enthusiasm for learning is extremely rewarding and he is always keen to seek advice and improve his work and achieve the very highest marks. Tom always presents his work in a neat and professional manner and all his network User Area is well ordered. He deserves success!
Mr Moore (Director of Teaching & Learning – ICT)
