Diana Vorona said that the teachers at Regent High School had ‘given a lot of support’ and that ‘it is personal for the teachers. They truly, truly care for the students… and want them to do their best’. Diana will join Regent Sixth Form to study A Levels in French, Geography and Sociology, and gave the following advice to younger students: ‘Start revising from September in Year 11. Work SMARTer, don’t stress and always take care of yourself. Don’t sacrifice your sleep!’ Faziha Begum said that the staff at Regent High School are ‘very supportive’ and ‘accommodate students’ needs to the fullest, providing extra help when needed’. Faziha will be studying A Level Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at Regent Sixth Form in September.
Gary Moore, Headteacher, said of the results: ‘I am extremely proud of the dedication and commitment shown by our Year 11 students this year, and I am delighted to be able to congratulate them on their excellent results. I would also like to acknowledge the hard work and support of our devoted and enthusiastic staff who have supported our students through consistently high quality teaching. These results show our students’ strong progress, regardless of their starting points, and prepare them for success in the future.’
