There were huge celebrations today, as all that hard work, resilience, patience and resolve had finally paid off, the school said.

Hard work pays off for CFS pupils

Principal, Mrs New, said: "Once again I am astounded by the courage and perseverance of these young people. Despite everything that was thrown at them over the last two years, they have all continued to work hard, never giving up.

"Perhaps even more impressively, this was always with a smile! I am so proud of them and the results they have received today, results they have truly earnt"

Head of year, Mrs Tulley, added: "This is an exceptionally kind, friendly, united and mature group of young people and I wish them every success on their next steps, which I am so proud they are able to take due to these great results today.

"We will miss them at CFS, and I am privileged to have been their head of year."
