Uckfield Community Technology College students achieved an excellent set of GCSE results.
The school said even set against the background of more challenging marking and a national decline in results students performed impressively with 70.2 per cent gaining five or more GCSEs at grades A*-C (including English and Maths). 82 per cent of those grades being awarded were at grades A* - C.
Hugh Hennebry, Principal said: “Congratulations to all our Year 11 students who have produced UCTC’s best ever results.
“You should all be hugely proud of your achievements, a real tribute to the hard work of students, staff and parents alike.
“As the bar to succeed gets higher, our students have demonstrated huge resilience, tough determination and intense concentration as they studied and revised for these exams.
“They thoroughly deserve their success.”
