Staff at St Mary’s Catholic College, Wallasey, welcomed back Year 11 students to collect their GCSE and BTEC results.
Students and staff were equally excited to see the results and to share in the planning of the next part of the students’ academic journey in St Mary’s Sixth Form College.
St Mary’s results were overall in line with expectations and there are some fantastic success stories.
Headteacher, Mr Kevin Maddocks, said, “I am proud of the resilience and determination our Year 11s have shown in their revision, the number diligently attending after school revision sessions and Saturday School has been remarkable.
“Our pupils are inspiring and talented young people, and we couldn’t be prouder of them. It’s been great to see them today and we can’t wait to work with them in St Mary’s Sixth Form College”.
