Mr Nicholas Sheehan, Principal of JIS said that "whilst these top performing students will leave JIS with superb academic results, they will be remembered more by their fellow students for the significant impact as young leaders in the school and the influence they have had on those around them. They have set an excellent example to the younger members of our community. These success stories would not have been written without their parents support and also that of the academic team in the Upper Years - Mr Daniel Milner (Head of Senior School and JIS Vice Principal), Mr Alex Cook (Academic Director), Mr Dan Roberts (Head of Sixth Form - Academic), Lynsay Scott (Pastoral Director) and Mr John van der Marel (Head of Sixth Form - Pastoral) who, together with the teaching and pastoral staff continue to challenge and inspire students to become the best that they can be.”
