PROUDLY holding their certificates aloft, a group of Ipswich students were all smiles as they celebrated their academic achievements.

Between them 20 students had gained the best ever results at Beacon Hill School and as they reunited to collect their awards it was clear they were more than happy with their accomplishments.

Certificates of Achievement in a range of subjects and Duke of Edinburgh, junior sports leader, and youth awards were all handed out at the Stone Lodge Lane special school at which they had been taught.

Senior manager Gaynor Veal said: "These are the best ever results.

"The nice thing is they have achieved as much as students from main stream schools and most have now gone on to college, training placements and jobs."

Suffolk's Director of Education, David Peachey, was at the presentation to help the students celebrate their successes.

He said: "This is a tremendously important day for them. In many cases, they have spent five to ten years here and this day is about the fruits of their hard work.

"It's a privilege to be asked to come along."
