Colne Primet Academy Principal, Dean Lythgoe said: “We have a saying at Primet that we are Proud to be Primet and I am most definitely proud of this dedicated group of students, who haven’t let anything stand in the way of achieving their first choice next steps.

“This group of students are extremely popular with staff and younger students at Primet and while we are going to miss them a lot, we will be proudly following their journeys to college, university and employment and look forward to them keeping in touch with us.”
