‘It’s been a lovely morning at the Mount today with a lot of very happy people around the school. Over the last few years we’ve enjoyed a period of consistent growth in Mount St Mary’s. The results this year, our 175th, mark a third successive year of improvement in our academic performance and are a source of great joy to all of us. We applaud the hard working students, their teachers and families who have supported them all the way on their journey through education so far. As we salute them today we wish them well for the next steps which they can take with confidence.'
