“Although I am extremely pleased with my three A*s, what I will take away from City most of all is how supported I felt at the school. I have felt valued not only academically but also personally, and without this I would not have been able to achieve these results. The teachers and pupils at City enabled me to thrive.” Ellie Arnold
