Sunday Times Award for St Dominic's

The Sunday Times has named St Dominic’s Sixth Form College in Harrow on the Hill as its Sixth Form College of the Year.

Headteacher Andrew Parkin has described it as a privilege to lead the school, saying: ‘The kids are delightful, they are really inspiring young man and women to lead. They work hard and are really committed to do as well as they can and that’s why it’s a very special place to be.’ He went on to say: ‘This is a great honour for the College, for Catholic Education and for all those students and staff, past and present who have contributed to our success over the last 37 years.’
