VIDEO: Pupils pick up GCSEs

Students at Eastwood and Kimberley Schools were celebrating this week after picking up their GCSEs.

49 per cent of students at Eastwood got five or more A* to C grades including English and maths and 86 per cent got the top grades across all subjects.

In Kimberley more than 20 per cent of pupils got five or more A* to C grades including English and maths, but teachers could not release any other figures due to some discrepancies with exam boards.
