There were some impressive GCSE and BTEC results at Holy Trinity School, Gossops Green, which left staff and students celebrating.
Congratulating the youngsters, headteacher Rev Chrissie Millwood said: “As we know from the national press this has been a particularly challenging year and these students have been the first to complete the new GCSEs in English and maths – qualifications which have been described as significantly harder than previously.
“We are all extremely proud of their achievements and the way in which they have embraced the challenges presented to them as the first cohort to undertake these brand new courses.
“We are confident that these results will be a stepping stone for these young people to further success.”
