CRAVEN College GCSE students have smiles on their faces after getting their results.

French and German students achieved a 100 per cent pass rate – with A* and A grades.

Principal Robert Bellfield said: "Congratulations to all on their personal achievements.

“It is important for many of our students who did not reach their full potential studying GCSEs at school or wanted to improve their grades to be able to come to Craven College and learn in an adult environment. This can be of real benefit to them as they receive the support they need to flourish."

Among those picking up their results was Chiara Mori who attended Parkside School and lives in Cullingworth.

She achieved a B grade in biology and will continue her Level 3 Animal Management at the college with a view to going on to study for a veterinary degree at Liverpool University.

Another former Parkside student Shannon Harker added a GCSE in English Language - at grade C - to the A, C, C and C grades she achieved in her AS Levels. This will allow her to go on to university to study nursing after completing A Levels in human biology, sociology and ICT.
