Mrs Milner said;


“I always run out of superlatives to describe results days at Wally Hall. Our students’ success year on year on year is quite overwhelming but it’s a feeling we never tire of. The girls thoroughly deserve all of their success and are such a credit to their parents and teachers. It is immensely gratifying to see their commitment, ingenuity and endeavor rewarded on paper and to know that they are so well positioned to hit the ground running as they move on to the Sixth Form studies. Very well done girls.”
