The class of 2015 from St Clement’s High School, in Terrington St Clement, were reunited last Thursday to celebrate their recent success and receive their GCSE certificates.
Staff, pupils and parents congregated at the village church, where successful students were joined by Charles Dennett, from KLFM, who presented the GCSE certificates and prizes.
Mr Wood, assistant headteacher for the year group, said: “It was great to see so many students coming back to celebrate their success.
“This year group achieved the best results in the school’s history and the local area so we are very proud of them. Many of them have offered to come back to the school and help support the current year 11 with preparation for exams.”
St Clements High School were named as Secondary School of the Year at the recent Lynn News Education Awards, held in association with Learning Resources.
Headteacher Mr Nigel Willingham added: “We are grateful to Reverend Robert Slipper for allowing us to hold this event in the church for the second year running, it is a beautiful setting for this celebration.
“We are also very grateful to all those people who sponsor prizes every year. The students really appreciate the public recognition for their achievements.”
Since being placed in special measures four years ago, St Clements High School has consistently improved, culminating in record GCSE results this summer, when 68 per cent of pupils achieved five A* to C grades - the highest in West Norfolk.
