AJ Skerka, 17, said: “I tried really hard and got my GCSE in English, so now I feel I’ve actually done something in life. Tomorrow I can enrol to do a BTEC in business on the Hitchin campus.”

Lilly Parsons, a level 2 health and social care student got a C in GCSE maths. She said: “I started an apprenticeship and I really needed a GCSE in maths to carry on in my role. I’m over the moon with my result.”

Benjamin Simmons who got a C in maths said: “I’m really chuffed with my grade, because I plan on going on to do a course in mechanics.”

Also celebrating was mature student Cheryl Harrigan. She said: “I didn’t think I’d get good grades but I have a B and C in English and maths which is what I needed to do teacher training.”
