At Smestow, we expect effort and commitment from all of our students. But sociology teacher, Miss King, says she has been lucky enough to teach a group for the past two years who have each gone above and beyond.

She says: “The 2015-17 sociology group have, from day one, demonstrated an absolute drive to succeed and have ensured that they have set themselves up well for their final exams. I wanted to formally thank this group for the last two years and the many good times we have shared.

“They have made my job an absolute pleasure and I am very thankful that they chose sociology, as I hope they are! We had a great end of year trip to Nando’s to celebrate. Good luck in your exams 13C – I am extremely proud of you.”
