Students at Astrea Academy Trust school St Ivo Academy in St Ives are overjoyed with their long-awaited results, in a year in which schools were closed and exams cancelled.
Despite this, students have shown great courage and commitment to succeed – and can now take their next exciting steps with pride.
Results this year have been determined by teachers, following a rigorous process designed to ensure students have the grades they merit and are able to move on to their next stage of study, training or work.
Sam Griffin, Principal of St Ivo Academy, part of Astrea Academy Trust, said: “I’m delighted for St Ivo students, who have worked so hard for these grades in difficult circumstances.
"They deserve all our congratulations and best wishes for the future.”
