HATFIELD's Onslow St Audrey's School has won a BAFTA in national recognition for its outstanding improvement of GCSE exams.

It was identified as one of 350 schools and academies whose exam results rose consistently over the past four years.

To mark the 10 per cent increase, chair of governors Heather Dyce attended a celebratory dinner at BAFTA's base in Piccadilly, London.

She said: "I am delighted that all the hard work over the past few years has been recognised.

"It was great to be given the opportunity to network with other successful schools and be proud of our achievements."

A BAFTA spokesman said: "Over the past 60 years, the academy has worked hard to fulfill its charitable remit by identifying excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public.

"The promotion of excellence extends far beyond our awards ceremonies.

"As a charitable organisation, the academy plays an equally powerful role at our headquarters at Piccadilly, across our nations and regions, in cinemas, schools and communities in the UK.
