"Today has been an absolute delight for us here at school", said Chris Nuttall, Director of Sixth Form, "This has been an excellent year group who have not only developed academically during their time here at Tarporley, but also personally, as individuals. Our Sixth Form students contribute so much to the life of the school and to the local community, and are frequently praised for their mature approach, their teamwork and their leadership. Today is a fitting reward for all their hard work, supported by their families and the dedicated staff at the school. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them every success in their next pathway in life. We really will miss them all!"
