Students and staff at Bassingbourn Village College are celebrating yet another successful haul of GCSE results.
The sun shone on students as they collected their results this morning, with lots of happy faces - and a few happy tears - as those all-important brown envelopes were opened.
Vickey Poulter, head of school, said: "We are delighted with this year's results as staff and students worked exceptionally hard and many students achieved above expectations in all subject areas.
"It is fantastic to see the success of such a dedicated and enthusiastic year group and I wish them every success in the future in their chosen courses/careers."
In total, 73 per cent of all students achieved grade 4 or higher in English and maths, with 24 per cent of all exam results at grade 7-9 (A/A*). More than 80 per cent of exams sat achieved level 4 and above.
