Worle students received their GCSE results last week, with their principal ‘extremely proud’ of their achievements.

Worle Community School Academy students were rewarded for their hard work over five years, after an unprecedented year due to coronavirus.

The academy saw 57 grade 9s across the school, and 124 grade 8s.

Eight students got eight or more of the top grades of 9 to 7. Some 14 students achieved every grade as 9 to 7.

Daisy Hooper obtained eight grade 9s and two grade 8s among a host of excellent student results, while head girl Daisy Dennett received one grade 9, two grade 8s, three grade 7s, three grade 6s and a distinction in music practitioners, with a BTEC grade to follow.
