St Bedes School stays on a par with previous year
IT WAS smiles all round at St Bede's School in Redhill last Thursday as students picked up their much-awaited GCSE results.
Tension was palpable as teachers handed out envelopes to nervous pupils, many of them shaking in anticipation.
But all that evaporated into a stream of euphoria, excitement and more than a few tears as students finally found out their results.
Despite the nationwide fall in exam passes at A*-C, St Bede's in Carlton Road remained on a par with last year with 80 per cent of its pupils receiving at least five of these grades, while the number of pupils receiving five plus A*-E grades was 99 per cent.

Head teacher Christopher Curtis said: "I am very pleased with this year's GCSE results, and thrilled that so many students have done so well. This year group really did work very hard indeed with staff and we are looking forward to seeing them continue to succeed in future."
