STOWMARKET High School students are celebrating some cracking results - with one pupil believed to have scooped four A grades.

Headteacher Keith Penn praised students' hard work and staff and parents who had helped them achieve their grades.

Mr Penn said: “We are very pleased with the results achieved by our students this year. A smaller cohort than the previous year, they have performed in a way which reflects the hard work put in by themselves and the support of their teachers and parents.

“The overall pass rate has shown a slight improvement over last year and continues the steady rise over a three year period.

“Our congratulations go to every one of these students and we wish them good luck for the future as they use the fruits of their hard work to take them on to the next step.”
