Y12 Growth Mindset – Watch this space!

Last week, we were proud to announce SIS’s best ever GCSE results. Since then, there has been considerable discussion about what ‘best ever’ really means. We will be writing to you again next week to highlight how so many of our Year 12 students have developed their growth mindsets to make such a big difference – watch this space!
