Latymer Upper School Head, David Goodhew, said today: “The Class of 2019 have exciting futures to look forward to in the next stage of their educational journey.  Our pupils are encouraged to foster an international outlook on life during their time here so it’s no surprise that many will be studying abroad, the majority in the US. I’m proud of all our pupils, who work hard both in the classroom and in their many co-curricular activities, and the breadth of their interests is borne out in their choices of higher education study, from Aerospace Engineering to Music and Technology. I’m particularly proud of those students who joined Latymer in the Sixth Form and who have settled in to become such excellent Latymerians, achieving high scores across the board.  My colleagues also deserve praise for their work in supporting and inspiring our pupils throughout their time at Latymer.  We wish all our school leavers well in their further studies.”
