Three Caistor Yarborough Academy students have been recognised for their GCSE achievements at a ceremony in London.

Heidi Allenby, George Gissing and Nathan Griffin travelled to the Central Hall in Westminster for the celebration event.

The students were nominated by the school for high GCSE results achieved through hard work and commitment.

“It was a fabulous day and such an honour to celebrate the achievement of our students,” said headteacher Jeremy Newnham, who accompanied the students to the event.

“We have had the best results in the history of the school this year and that is due to the commitment of our staff and students, and the support of our parents.”

Also accompanying the teenagers were their parents.

“We were so proud to see Heidi up on the stage to receive her award,” said Chris Allenby.

“Every student was there through their own hard work and determination, all with their own individual stories of success and it truly was an honour to be part of their day.

“It really is a day we will always remember.

“For Heidi this last year has been far from easy, but with all the fantastic support from the staff at Caistor Yarborough, Heidi has come a very long way.”

The event was arranged by the PiXL club and the trio received their certificates of achievement from Baroness Sue Campbell, Chair of Youth Sports Trust and UK Sport, and Paralympic champion Hannah Cockcroft.
