THESE young people from Kirkby’s Ashfield School were among thousands of students across the area collecting their long-awaited GCSE results on Thursday.

Schools once again broke records for students gaining good grades, with some seeing big increases in the number of pupils picking up five or more A* to C grades.

Students arrived early in the morning to collect their results a week after their A-Level counterparts had been given their grades.

See next week’s Chad for a full round-up of results from Mansfield and Ashfield schools.
