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.
