SELSTON Arts and Community College students have achieved their best examination results in the school’s history.

Headteacher Di Stendall, who is retiring at the end of the year, said she was ‘delighted’ at the grades.

Pupils, parents and councillors attended a special certificates awards presentation, where the results were announced and several pupils were honoured.

During the last year pupils’ grades have improved by nine per cent. 59 per cent of students achieved at least 5 A* to C grades including maths and English and 91 per cent of students got C or above in science.

Chair of governors Betty Dixon said at the ceremony: “This journey to success has been made possible by an inspirational headteacher and dedicated staff.”

Ms Stendall said: “It is great to know that I am bowing out on a high. I’m immensely proud.”
