Halifax High students were gleaming with joy this morning after recieving their GCSE results.
Nervous pupils arrived all morning to collect their eagerly anticipated exam results.
Umer Shaukat, 16, was grinning with delight after recieving his results.
“I didn’t expect to do that well. I am not a science person but it seems that I should be from the results I got.”
Umer will now go to Greenhead College to study maths, further maths, buisness and economics and hopes to be an accountant eventually.
Mick Kay, headteacher of the secondary school, said: “We have done really well and are very pleased with the results at Halifax High.
“These children couldn’t have achieved any better anywhere in Calderdale.”
