Last year's GCSE students from Budehaven have gathered together to celebrate their exam success. Around 80 former pupils and their parents attended the GCSE Evening of at the end of last term to recognise their excellent results in the summer exams. 

Many of them made a special journey from Exeter and Truro to collect their GCSE certificates.

A number of them were also recognised for overall top marks in a subject.  The highest overall achieving boys were Joe Huxford and Stuart Grigg while the top achieving girls were Idony Perrett and Jodie Granger.

Doctor David Hillebrandt, a local GP and active mountaineer who has been chief medical advisor for the British Mountaineering association, was the guest speaker.  He gave a humorous and honest talk emphasising how the students should follow their dreams and challenge themselves throughout their lives. 

Head of Year, Mel Bardsley, said: "It was a lovely social evening of celebration and a great opportunity to get this dynamic, confident year group together again and catch up with what has been happening for them all over the past 3 months.

So many of these students are already doing well in their A levels and on other courses around the South West, and as always I know they will go on to achieve great things."
