Exam results

Congratulations to all of our teens who have recently received exam results. Special mention for Aleena and Hooriya who shared their outstanding achievements with us at their recent YAIS appointments. They have both achieved high level grades in their subjects and are now studying A Levels in sixth form. Well done and we look forward to hearing about more successes in the future!

Letter from Tom

13 year old Tom recently wrote to Mr Strachan who carried out Tom’s bilateral implants 10 years ago. Tom wanted to let Mr Strachan know what he has been up to over the past 10 years and also to let him know that the koala he was given from Cochlear at the time of his operation is named Strachan in the surgeon’s honour! Tom was thrilled to receive a reply from Mr Strachan. Click here to see Tom’s letter.
