FOWEY Community College's certificate evening was a celebration of Year 11 achievements which saw this summer's GCSE results announced as the best in the school's history.

Deputy head teacher Phil Walker, who organised the evening, said: "It was a fantastic evening.

"It was made even more poignant by the fact it was the best set of GCSE results the school has ever had.

"It's difficult to put your finger on exactly why, but it's to do with student aspiration.

There was a determination among staff and students to aspire to better achievements. Staff set high targets and the students rose to them."
