A-LEVEL RESULTS: Departed principal Tim Hitch praises Neale-Wade’s students
DEPARTED principal Tim Hitch has praised Neale-Wade Community College’s students this morning after they received their A-Level results.
In a parting gift to Mr Hitch - who had been in charge at the March school for almost five years - every student was successful in passing A-Level examinations.
The out-going principal, who will be replaced by Jason Wing in September, said: “I am pleased with the students’ results this year.
“I would like to congratulate all students, but especially: Rachel Roe (Mathematics A*, Biology A, Chemistry A and Further Mathematics A); Sarah Bannister (Chemistry A, Mathematics A and Biology B); Ben Crowther (Product design A, Geography A and History B).
“Thomas Searle (History A*, English language and literature A and government and politics B); Rebecca Jackson (Product design A, English language and literature B, Psychology B and Biology C) for their success at A-Level.
