This reflects the commitment and resilience of both our pupils and staff. 

I am immensely proud, not only of the pupils’ exceptional academic achievements, but also of the unwavering dedication, resilience, and personal growth they have demonstrated beyond the classroom. Within this year group, we have a myriad of talented individuals – from skilled dancers, accomplished jockeys, and exceptional athletes to confident public speakers and gifted artists. These achievements encompass the essence of the holistic all-round education we are proud to provide at The Mount.”
