TRIBUTE has been paid to Year 13 students at South Craven School in Cross Hills.

School bosses said the pupils had achieved "excellent" results in their A-level and Level 3 vocational courses.

Headteacher Martyn Hill said: "We are so proud of the achievements of our Year 13 students, especially after the extra challenges they've faced in recent years.

"I congratulate all our students and extend my congratulations and thanks to parents and families, who have provided such strong support. I also want to thank the staff who worked tirelessly to ensure the students achieved their academic potential and enjoyed so much success."

And head of sixth form, Caroline Taylor, said: "It was lovely to see the students in school to collect their results.

"They have all shown incredible resilience over the last few years and are now reaping the rewards as they move on to their next adventure. I am very proud of each and every one of them and wish them all the luck in the world for their futures."

Students are now moving on to various universities, and to take up apprenticeships.

The school is operating its usual post-results support service for any students requiring advice or guidance.
