The boss of Barclaycard Business Solutions, Philip McHugh, gave an inspirational speech at Denbigh High School’s annual Excellence Evening.
This year the school received its best-ever GCSE results in terms of pupils gaining five or more good passes, including English and mathematics. It is now not only ranked as the best performing school in Luton, but also one of the best in Bedfordshire.
Acting principal Colin Townsend said: “Our annual Excellence Evening is a highlight in the calendar where splendid achievements in the broadest sense are celebrated – from academic accolades to endeavours in leadership, sports, the arts and beyond.”
Several awards were presented, including the highest performing student in each subject area.
Mr McHugh said: “This is one of the best and smartest schools I’ve come across and I’d love to keep in touch.”
