It was a time of great celebration for pupils, parents and teachers as all the hard work over the last two years came to fruition.

There were a few tears from emotional and relieved pupils and their proud families.

The college achieved a 63 per cent (with re-marks pending) pass rate of five or more A*-C grades – an outstanding achievement from a lovely year group.

Danielle Moore received her results alongside her proud family and achieved a “phenomenal” A*, seven As and two Bs.
