A SCHOOL has paid tribute to its Year 11 students.

South Craven School at Cross Hills praised pupils' "excellent" results in their GCSEs and Level 2 vocational qualifications.

Headteacher Martyn Hill said: "We're so proud of the achievements of Year 11 and I congratulate every single student on their hard work, positive attitudes and resilience during a tough five years.

"I'd also like to thank parents and carers who have supported the school so strongly, especially in the last two years, and thank the staff, who worked hard every day to help our students achieve their potential."

Head of Year 11, Nick Truelove, says: "It was incredibly rewarding for me today to see so many smiling faces.

"I'm extremely proud of every single Year 11 student on their excellent results and wish them every success in the future."

Many students will return to start in the sixth form.
