I am delighted with another year of outstanding GCSE results here at Connaught School for Girls.  This year group have been such fun to work with and their achievements are well-deserved.  I would like to thank all the staff for their relentless hard work and dedication with this group of girls.  I would also like to show my appreciation of our girls’ parents and families for the support and encouragement they have given to their daughters.  Well done to all our girls and I wish them a very successful and happy future in whatever they choose to do. Retiring headteacher, Ms Sally Walker
