A SUDDEN DOWNPOUR of rain failed to dampen spirits of students at Uckfield Community Technology College who collected their GCSE results this morning, August 25.
Students worked very hard to fulfil their potential, and there were many delighted students who surpassed their expectations.
An amazing seven students achieved more than ten A* and A grades; with 62 per cent of the year group achieving the benchmark 5 A*-C with english and maths.
Results in english (70 per cent A*-C) and maths (69 per cent) GCSE were impressive, with 68 per cent of all entries graded C or above.
Principal Hugh Hennebry said: “I must say a huge thank-you to the parents, teachers and pastoral leaders that have supported and challenged each individual student to do his or her very best”
