    All hail those who graft away unsung. It is incumbent on those who lead to create the right opportunities for these students to succeed in whichever direction life takes them. We create for them, they in turn create for the next generation.

    Congratulations to the pupils.

    Let us now overhaul the recruitment practices of employers so that this kind of achievement is recognised by more than just universities

    Yes, congratulations to the Wokingham students.
    Question Sir John: If our schools can achieve such good results on a very limited amount of money, why do so many better funded schools achieve so much less?
    Do our schools really need higher funding or are other schools in other areas getting too much?

    Reply Yes our schools need more for salaries, building improvement, teaching resources, trips etc. Our pupils do well thanks to their efforts and the teaching, but that’s no reason to short change them

      Thank you Sir John,
      I didn’t realize that out of the £5000 per pupil, all the capital costs of building improvements had to be paid.
      I suppose that if the salary increases currently being mooted are implemented, the funding will remain tight.
