Today (August 20) is results day for GCSE students across the country and pupils at Sutton Community Academy in Sutton-In-Ashfield are celebrating their successful results after a challenging year.

This year’s results were based on centre assessment grades, which is a teacher’s professional judgement of the most likely grade a student would have achieved if the exams had gone ahead.

There were plenty of top performers at the community academy in Ashfield but special congratulations have gone out to Lauren Webb who achieved a spectacular set of results, including two grade 9’s, three grade 8’s and three grade 7’s.
