Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic College celebrated as a significant number of their pupils achieved the top grades of A*s and 9s.

Six pupils achieved the new 'super grade' of 9 in either English or Maths -  with one student celebrating a double '9.'

There were A*s and As in a host of other subjects as the school continues its strong academic tradition.

"At Blessed Trinity we are very proud of the achievements of our pupils," said Head Teacher Mr Thompson.

"In the new Maths and English GCSEs, where candidates achieved a Grade 1-9, our pupils have continued to perform well, with a number achieving the new super grade of 9.

"We are delighted that many pupils have also hit the top A* and A grades in other subjects as well.

"Our students will go on to study A-Levels, BTEC's as well as apprenticeships while we have several sporting students who have won special scholarships. We are proud of all of them."
