CHIPPING Campden School students have been celebrating after the release of GCSE results.

In congratulating students and staff John Sanderson, the school’s principal, said: “I’m delighted to see so many students being awarded the GCSE grades they richly deserve.

"They have had so much to cope with over the last few months and clearly experienced a great deal of anxiety over recent days.

"Both students and staff have worked extremely hard and have every reason to feel proud of their achievements this year.

"With such encouraging grades we are really looking forward to welcoming so many of our students, along with almost 70 from surrounding schools, back into our sixth form in September."
