It’s been an emotional morning for youngsters picking up their GCSE results at Monk’s Walk School in Welwyn Garden City.
A high number of pupils – 26 – achieved at least eight subjects at A* or A.
Many have gained the grades they need to progress into the sixth form, college or apprenticeship.
Headteacher Kate Smith said: “I am delighted with these GCSE results which are once again testament to the hard work of the students, staff and trustees of Monk’s Walk.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to our parents who support the students and the school.
“We are facing unprecedented changes nationally which make it more and more of a challenge to deliver good results.
“These GCSE results come hard on the heel of last week’s very strong A-level results, which saw almost all students gaining a place at university or apprenticeship of their choice.”
