There was huge expectation in the air here at Smestow School as pupils collected their GCSE results.

Headteacher Martyn Morgan said: “It has been a nervous wait and I’m sure everyone was pleased to have finally found out how they got on.

“Our headline figures are pleasing and are a clear indication of just how hard the pupils and staff have worked.

“An important message we are giving to pupils – both here at Smestow and at other schools – is that you have lots of options, whatever your results may be.

“The sixth form centre here at Smestow has a range of opportunities for further studies, including BTEC qualifications as well as A-Levels.”
