“I will miss Whitmore as I have been here for six years and have grown very fond of the school. I will miss my teachers the most as they have really supported me from the beginning.”
Headteacher Sue Hammond said: “I am very proud of all our sixth form students. They have contributed a lot to life at Whitmore, achieved top grades and are going on to some great courses.
