a HEADTEACHER has praised the achievements of his staff and pupils as he welcomed more than 900 visitors to his school.

Tadcaster Grammar head Geoff Mitchell told those gathered at last week’s open evening that GCSE results were exceptional with 77 per cent of students gaining 5A* to C grades.

And he promised that he would do all in his power to ensure that if a child wanted to join Tadcaster Grammar in September 2012, it would be possible.

“We are justifiably proud of what we have achieved, what is on offer and the way in which our students are able to demonstrate this,” said Mr Mitchell.

Visitors to the open evening were treated to displays of school activities and achievements.

The Big Band was set up on the stage and played several classics, while a trio of musicians played at every opportunity, picking up their instruments to give an impromptu performance in several locations around the school.

“We hope that all our visitors enjoyed the open evening at Tadcaster Grammar School and took away with them some special memories,” Mr Mitchell added.

The school added that transition manager, Sue Western, is available to answer any questions from parents of Year 6 children or arrange visits, during the course of the next year. Telephone 01937 833466.
