Latymer Upper School Head, David Goodhew, said,"I’m excited for our Class of 2018 who are looking forward to the next stage in their educational journey and will soon be heading off to become undergraduates – the majority at their first choice university. I’m proud of all our pupils, who work hard both in the classroom and in their many co-curricular activities, making them the well-rounded and lively individuals Latymerians are known for being. I’m particularly proud of our means-tested bursary pupils who are on the way to fulfilling their ambitions of joining the professions of medicine, engineering and academia. My colleagues also deserve praise for their work in supporting and inspiring our pupils throughout their time at Latymer. We wish them well in their further studies.“
