Cllr Penny Carpenter, cabinet member for Children’s Services at Norfolk County Council, said, “Congratulations to all students on completing their GCSEs. I hope every single one is proud of what they’ve achieved and is excited about their next steps into further education, apprenticeships, or work with training.

“Today should also be a celebration of all our school and education staff including teachers, head teachers, assistants, support staff, and tutors - a huge thank you to all those who have worked with young people and adults”.
